Archant

Diego Maradona was born into an incredibly poor family and spent his childhood living in a small hut with seven brothers and sisters in the shanty town of Fiorito, in the suburbs of Buenos Aires.

His journey from abject poverty to superstardom is a staggering one, a rags to riches tale filled with joy and heartbreak in equal amounts.His career scaled unbelievable heights yet plumbed the depths. He was ever controversial, but his ability with a ball at his feet is undoubted: many would argue unsurpassed. Genius or rebel, magician or maverick? Maradona split public opinion like no other footballer. From his rise to the top of the world to the ‘Hand of God’, 1986 World Cup glory, perhaps the greatest goal ever and his downward spiral, this is his remarkable story, told in his own words and by those who knew him best.

• This is the story of perhaps the greatest footballer of all time.

• His life is a rags to riches story, filled with triumph and despair in equal measure.

• Includes an in-depth interview with Maradona himself, providing a remarkable insight into the life of a true icon. Out now from Amazon.co.uk - RRP: £14.99
