FOOTBALLER DIEGO MARADONA LAID TO REST AS ARGENTINA GRIEVES
Football legend Diego Maradona has been buried in a private ceremony after a day of emotional scenes in the Argentine capital Buenos Aires.
Only around two dozen relatives and close friends attended the final ceremony on Thursday.
But earlier huge crowds turned out to pay their respects, with many weeping, blowing kisses and praying as they filed past his coffin.
Maradona died of a heart attack on Wednesday aged 60.
His death triggered mourning around the world but nowhere was it felt more fiercely than in a country that saw him as a national hero.
