Tributes are flooding in following the death of Argentina legend and one of the greatest footballers of all time, Diego Maradona. Reports that the former Barcelona, Napoli and Boca Juniors star - who won the World Cup in 1986 with Argentina - had passed away aged 60 were confirmed by his attorney on Wednesday, and the world of football was quick to reaction.
Maradona helped Argentina to the World Cup in 1986.
Former Manchester United defender Nemanja Vidic should take over as the Serbian FA chief and he needs the government's support to get the Balkan nation's soccer out of the doldrums, the Premier League club's midfielder Nemanja Matic said on Wednesday. Matic, who hung up his Serbia boots in August to extend his United career, criticised the country's FA as they failed to reach the Euro 2020 finals after a penalty shootout defeat by Scotland earlier this month.
Argentine football legend Diego Maradona has died of a heart attack at the age of 60, his spokesman announced Wednesday. The announcement came hours after Maradona left a hospital in Olivos, Argentina after undergoing surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain.Alongside Brazil's Pele, who turned 80 last month, Maradona is widely regarded as one of the greatest soccer players of all time.Rags-to-richesRising to stardom from a grimy Buenos Aires slum to lead Argentina to World Cup victory, Maradona was a rags-to-riches story in his football-mad homeland and gained the iconic status of fellow Argentines Che Guevara and Evita Peron.One of the most gifted footbal players in history, Maradona's pinnacle of glory came when he captained Argentina to win the World Cup in 1986 before plunging to misery when he was kicked out the 1994 World Cup for doping.Years of drug use, overeating and alcoholism truncated a stellar career and altered his appearance from the lithe athlete who could slalom effortlessly through teams to a bloated addict who nearly died of cocaine-induced heart failure in 2000.But he reinvented himself in a stunning comeback in 2008 as coach of the Argentina team, persuading managers that with sheer charisma he could inspire the team to victory, despite a lack of coaching experience.El DiezA magician with the ball, Maradona was worshipped as 'El Dios' – The God – partly a play on words on his number 10 shirt, 'El Diez.'He was largely responsible for Argentina's World Cup victory in 1986 in Mexico, scoring two famous goals in one game against England in the quarter-finals.The first was a notorious goal scored with his fist, and the second, where he dribbled past half the England team, is often called the goal of the century."It was partly by the hand of God and partly with the head of Maradona," he said of his opener in the 2-1 win.Childhood in a shanty townBorn on October 30, 1960 in the Buenos Aires working class suburb of Lanus, the fifth of eight children of a factory worker, Maradona grew up in the Villa Fiorito shanty town.His mother Dalma, known to his fans as "Dona Tota," saw a star reflected on the floor in the church where her son was baptized and imagined a bright future as an accountant.But Maradona's love affair with football was apparent from the start. Given his first football as an infant, he slept with it under his arm.Discovered in street kickabouts by the scout for first division club Argentinos Juniors, the prodigy made his league debut at 15.At 17 he just missed inclusion in Argentina's 1978 World Cup-winning squad at home. In the 1982 tournament in Spain, a sending-off against Brazil was a fitting prologue to two unhappy seasons at Barcelona, marred by hepatitis and injury.World Cup glory followed by drug abuseBut then came liberation, and triumph. In 1984, he moved to Napoli for a then world-record $7.5 million contract. Maradona helped underdogs Napoli to the Italian title twice – creating a whole new set of adoring fans in the process.And, after the 1986 World Cup triumph in Mexico, he also coaxed a mediocre Argentine team to a second successive World Cup final in Rome in 1990.But by 1991, drugs and alcohol began taking over his life.That year Maradona was handed a 15-month suspension from football worldwide for doping and was called to trial in Naples over alleged links with a vice ring.He was banned again for 15 months after testing positive for drugs at the 1994 World Cup in the United States.The compact, 5-foot 4-inch (1.65m) player with dark curly hair and a pugnacious set to his jaw surrounded himself with an entourage of yes-men and became known for his sharp-tongued confrontations with reporters and critics.Through the years he reflected publicly on his greatness and on his weaknesses, publishing books of photos and quotes about himself and hosting a television show.(FRANCE 24 with AFP and REUTERS)

News that Salesforce is interested in buying Slack, the popular workplace chat company, sent shares of the smaller firm sharply higher today. Slack is worth $36.95 per share as of the time of writing, valuing it at around $20.8 billion. Inversely, shares of Salesforce are trading lower on the news, falling around 3.5% as of the time of writing; investors in the San Francisco-based SaaS pioneer were either unimpressed at the combination idea, or perhaps worried about the price that would be required to bring the 2019 IPO into their fold.
Tech giants that break new EU rules aimed at curbing their powers could face fines, be ordered to change their practices or even be forced to break up their European businesses, the bloc's digital chief Thierry Breton said on Wednesday. Breton's comments come two weeks before he is due to present draft rules known as the Digital Services Act (DSA) and Digital Markets Act (DMA), which are likely to affect big U.S. players Google, Apple, Amazon, Facebook and Microsoft. The DSA will force tech companies to explain how their algorithms work, open up their advertising archives to regulators and researchers, and do more to tackle hate speech, harmful content and counterfeit products on their platforms.
