“Diego lives on:” Argentines pray for Maradona on 1st anniversary of his death

Fans and family of Diego Maradona in Argentina and around the world congregated on Thursday to remember and pray for the troubled soccer star on the one-year anniversary of his death.

In a church in Garin, in the province of Buenos Aires, family members joined a mass in his memory.

"We are not here to celebrate death, we came to celebrate life. The life that Diego left us," said Father Adrian Guedes, a priest who was close to Diego during his life.

After the mass Ana Maria Maradona, the star’s sister, said the past year had been "sad, very sad." Asked how she recalled her brother now she said: "With lots of love."

Maradona, who died on November 25 last year at the age of 60, was born in a poor neighbourhood outside the capital of Buenos Aires. He was an icon to many in Argentina and around the world, including Napoli, Italy, where a statue was unveiled of him on Thursday.
