São Paulo – Thousands of Argentines are gathered in Plaza de Mayo, in the center of Buenos Aires, to bid their last farewell to former player Diego Maradona, the greatest Argentine idol. The body of the world champion has been being watched, since the dawn of this Thursday (26), in Casa Rosada, headquarters of the Argentine government. The last personality who had his farewell at the official residence was former President Néstor Kirchner, who died in 2010.

Maradona’s body arrived at Casa Rosada around 1 am, received by ex-wife Claudia Villafañe and her daughters Dalma and Giannina. This intimate farewell also included the world champions in 1986, as well as other former players, such as defender Mascherano and goalkeeper Goycochea.

The initial forecast of the Argentine government was that the farewell ceremony would continue until Saturday (28). But, at the request of family members, the closure was rescheduled for 4 pm this Thursday.

The wake was open to the public around 6 am. The star’s coffin was covered by the Argentine flag, in addition to a shirt from the national team and another one from Boca Juniors, both with the number 10 “del Diós”.

In the beginning, there was a record of turmoil involving fans and police. Security officers try to control the crowd in an attempt to ensure measures of social distance.

In individual line, they pass by the casket of shirt 10, amid tears, clapping, blessings and thanks. Flowers, shirts and flags are also thrown towards the ace.

By 8 am, the line of fans had already exceeded seven blocks. They also wear shirts from the Argentine national team, Boca or Argentinos Juniors, a team from the capital where Maradona started playing. “It doesn’t look like a wake. It looks like the entrance to a football match ”, said journalist Martin Gonzalez, from the channel All News.

Party night

Despite the restrictions due to the pandemic, the Argentines preferred to gather, in a big party to say goodbye to the idol. During the night, fans of the star and disciples of the “Maradonian Church” started to gather in Praça de Maio.

At the arrival of Boca’s “barra brava” (organized crowd), fireworks were fired, giving the place a championship-ending atmosphere. Maradona was Argentine champion for the club in 1981, before his transfer to Europe, to defend Barcelona.

According to the public news agency Télam, judicial sources said that the autopsy on Maradona’s body determined that “acute pulmonary edema secondary to chronic heart failure” was the cause of his death.
