Buenos Aires: Following a premiere at the Argentinos Juniors stadium, where El Diez started his professional career in the mid-1970s, the first episode of a biographical series about his life aired on Argentinean television just over a year after his death.
“Maradona: Blessed Dream”, which was endorsed by the idol himself before his death on 25 November 2020, was produced by Amazon Prime Video and from Friday will be available in full on the streaming platform in more than 240 countries.
Maradona, who would have turned 61 on Saturday, signed the deal in 2019 that gave rise to the autobiographical series, which, according to its creators, does not take a patronising view of his life.
Last year, during a home stay on the outskirts of Buenos Aires, Maradona died of heart arrest.Seven doctors and nurses have been charged with medical malpractice. The case is still being looked into.
