Rather than a particularly winning player, Maradona was a revolutionary player.
Diego Armando Maradona, the Argentine idol who died this 25th Wednesday of a cardiorespiratory arrest, may have been the greatest football player in history. But it was much more than that.
Some, for example, saw him as God; others, like Satan.
But Maradona, likewise, was a successful television presenter, controversial football manager and coach, an acid commentator in the internet age, a central protagonist of world entertainment, a political activist and an example for millions around the planet.
And also: a hypermedia figure fallen from grace due to scandals, drug addiction and sympathy with controversial rulers.
