Argentina President Alberto Fernandez has declared three days of national mourning following the news of the death of Diego Maradona. 

Maradona died on Wednesday following a cardiac arrest.

Among those who have mourned the global football icon is Brazilian legend Pelé, who was his close friend.

“I have lost a dear friend, and the world has lost a legend. There is much more to say, but for now may God give his family strength. One day, I hope, we will play ball together in the sky,” Pelé said.
