He said: “Maradona, the wonderful artist of football who brought light and joy to millions around the world, is no more. A soccer legend whose story we will tell over and over.

Those of us who saw him play the ball with such lightness of touch, unstoppable on his way to goal, together with our children and grandchildren who heard the stories of every legendary goal – all give thanks tonight.

Thank you for unforgettable moments, in sorrow and in joy, for the moments of hope and pure joy that you brought to millions around the world. I send consolation to the Argentinian people and to football fans everywhere on this sad evening.”
