If we talk about historical figures we have to talk about Diego Armando Maradona: a popular hero who, from inside and outside a soccer field, transmitted much more than any politician, any military man or any intellectual. His legacy will be eternal. It is a myth, a legend that lived as only he could.
Many times he made us forget that he was also a person and not only the savior of a country, of a people. He scored the most beautiful goal in the history of the World Cup and that goal, that game itself, was a message. Words are unnecessary and if there is someone good to honor him, it is Diego Armando Maradona himself.
