    Earlier in the day, thousands of football fans flooded the streets of the Argentinian capital Buenos Aires to pay tribute to late football star Diego Maradona, who died on Wednesday.

    Sputnik is broadcasting live from Buenos Aires, Argentina, as the body of football star Diego Maradona arrives at the Jardin Bella Vista cemetery, where he is to be buried later in the day.

    Diego Maradona died in Buenos Aires on Wednesday at the age of 60 due to heart failure. A few weeks earlier, he was hospitalised and underwent surgery for a blood clot in the brain.

    Argentina’s President Alberto Fernandez has declared three days of national mourning in honour of the deceased sports legend.
