El Diego: A tribute

We pay tribute to Diego Armando Maradona. We hear from Claudio Marangoni, who played against him in his early years in the Argentinean league. He describes Maradona as being like a hurricane. Antonio Nunez, who signed him as the unlikely coach of a Mexican second division team remembers how playful Maradona was. And we also recall Maradona's demons and his shock expulsion from the 1994 World Cup for doping.
