Bollywood has joined the world in mourning the death of football legend Diego Maradona.
The Argentina World Cup-winning captain died of a heart attack yesterday at the age of 60.
Though he had been ailing in recent days, having undergone brain surgery earlier this month, fans are still shocked by his passing.
Among those taking to social media to pay tribute were Shah Rukh Khan, Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgn and Madhuri Dixit Nene, just to name a few.
A number of IPL teams also posted tributes.

Have followed Maradona’s game & life for years. Maidaan brought me closer to the game. He was a football legend and a passionate sportsman. Sad to see him go. RIP Diego Maradona.
