Maradona in a league of his own - Jomo Sono
Argentina football icon Diego Maradona died on Wednesday at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack.
JOHANNESBURG - Former South African footballer Jomo Sono has remembered the late Diego Maradona as a genius on the field.
Maradona died on Wednesday at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack. He had undergone brain surgery earlier this month.
Sono said that Maradona was in a league of his own.
"I think the legend goes with a lot of hard work... to be passionate about the sport. When they take the field, all they want to do is play and entertain the people. Being a footballer, you're an entertainer. When they take the pitch, they want to give it their best and they work hard. It's something that they do week in, week out."
