Richiehenshaw 11/26/2020

The death of Diego Maradona clearly depicts the nothingness of life and the futility of human pursuits. Maradona was one of the most iconic figures the world had ever known, he brought charisma to the game of football. For years he was a sensation, it is no surprise that he is regarded as one of the greatest football players the world has ever known.

His flashy and flawed lifestyle was second to none. Because of the kind of lifestyle he lived, he always knew that he could depart this world anytime, even living up to the age of 60 was like a miracle to him, according to the report from The Sun. He was the most famous football genius the world has ever known.

Coming from the slums of Buenos Aires, Maradona worked his way to stardom using crooks and talent, but even though many regarded him as a football rogue, he was a rogue millions of people around the world loved. One of those famous crooks being the Hand of God goal, which footballing world will never forget.

Maradona's story is a story of a man who allowed fame and fortune to get into his head, and consequently lead to his doom, a lesson for everyone out there - that no matter what you achieve in life, the ultimate end is always waiting at the corner.

The most memorable glory of his footballing career was in 1986 when he led his country Argentina to World Cup glory. And in 1994, his low moments came when he failed drug tests during USA '94 World Cup, and was kicked out of the tournament. He was banned from football for 15 months, and since then, his career never remained the same again.

Years of alcoholism, overeating and drug abuse brought an untimely end to his scintillating career, but he never stopped fascinating the world. In 2000 he almost died of heart failure that resulted from the abuse of cocaine.

With such fame that he attained in life, it would be interesting to know the woman that captured the heart of this icon in marriage. Her name is Claudia Villafañe, and their marriage was blessed with two daughters - Giannina and Dalma Maradona - before it finally hit the rocks.

According to The Sun, Maradona met Claudia when she was just 17 years old, and he was betrothed to her for a pretty long time. In 1989, he finally got married to her.

Getting married to an international star like Maradona seemed like a huge prize, you could imagine how fulfilled Claudia felt then.

Claudia later pursued a career as a TV personality and producer, and rose to stardom in their home country Argentina. But in 2003, an end came to their beautiful marriage after about 20 years of marriage. Though officially, Maradona was a father to eight children.

Maradona was a man of drama, and was always making it to news headlines for one reason or the other. In 2015, Maradona surprised many when he accused his ex-wife, Claudia, of misappropriating millions of his dollars to buy a block of flats in Florida, USA. But there were due processes that needed to be followed before he could pursue a legal case against her in the US.

In 2018, Associated Press reported that Maradona had been granted permission to file a lawsuit against Claudia in the US, but whether Maradona had enough facts to back up his claim was another issue. The lawsuit was filed in Miami, and Associated Press disclosed that the misappropriation of money was uncovered in 2014 during an audit, but the glitch was the claim that their marriage was long over before the audit uncovered the misappropriation.

Claudia denied ever defrauding her ex-husband, Maradona, and her lawyers also argued that the case belonged to Argentina. But supposing Maradona's claims were correct, what surprised everyone was how Claudia could use his money and buy a condominium in far away Florida under his nose without his knowledge. Maradona's life was indeed a life full of drama and futility, a life that every human should learn from.
