Following the death of Diego Maradona, tributes have poured out from fans of their memories of a footballing legend.
Maradona courted controversy on and off the pitch - but is regarded by many as the greatest footballer to have ever graced the game. He was forever a character as large and unpredictable as his skill with a ball.
The president of Argentina has announced three days of mourning, following Maradona's death, while players and figures in the sport have weighed in with tributes to the World Cup winner.
Fans, too, have been sharing stories of the icon.

Sad day, but he left an everlasting memory on the beautiful game. Not many have achieved that, and not many will. RIP. #MaradonaNovember 25, 2020
