Argentina soccer legend Diego Maradona died of a heart attack on Wednesday, his lawyer said.

Maradona had an emergency operation for a subdural hematoma, which us an accumulation of blood between a membrane and his brain. He was admitted to the hospital longer than expected as he was showing withdrawal symptoms for his dependency on alcohol. He spent two years at the Nou Camp before heading to Napoli, where he spent the next seven seasons and scored over 100 goals.

In fact, his "Hand of God" goal against England during the '86 World Cup is one of the most famous moments in soccer history. He then went on to have a trophy-laden career for several clubs in Europe. He nearly died of cocaine-induced heart failure in 2000 and underwent years of rehabilitation.
