Argentinian soccer legend Diego Maradona, one of the sport's greatest players who scored the iconic and controversial "Hand of God" goal in the 1986 World Cup, died Wednesday, officials said.

He was 60.

Maradona suffered a fatal heart attack at his home in Buenos Aires, his longtime lawyer and agent Matias Morla told NBC News.

"The Argentine Football Association, through its President Claudio Tapia, expresses its deepest sorrow for the death of our legend, Diego Armando Maradona," the Argentine Football Association announced. "You will always be in our hearts."
