The 'Diego Maradona' Documentary Is Now Available To View For Free

The footballing world is in mourning after the death of Diego Maradona, and while there is an immense sense of grief after the passing of one of the greatest footballers of all time, it has given us the opportunity to look back at the incredible joy the Argentine provided us with over the years.

There is no doubt that Maradona will go down as one of the all-time greats. His performance at the 1986 World Cup in Mexico remains the standard-bearer for individual players at major tournaments, a benchmark that in all likelihood will never be met.

As talented as Maradona was, perhaps the most endearing thing about him was the joy he brought whenever he took to the pitch.

Of course, he was also a deeply flawed character away from football. While similar issues have effected the legacy of other sporting figures, this only added to the former Napoli player's legend.

It was during his time with the Italian club that he became a truly global icon, with his stint in Naples the focus of a brilliant feature length documentary released last year.

Diego Maradona focuses on the player's time in Napoli, encapsulating all the glory he experienced on the pitch, as well as the demons he battled off of it. It is an incredible watch and is the perfect medium via which to view Maradona's career after his untimely passing.
