A motorcade reported by local media to be carrying the body of Diego Maradona on Wednesday evening arrived at Government House. Maradona, who scored the "Hand of God" goal in 1986 and led his country to that year's World Cup title before later struggling with cocaine use and obesity, died on Wednesday at the age of 60.

His spokesman said he died of a heart attack, two weeks after being released from a hospital in Buenos Aires following brain surgery. The office of Argentina's president said it will decree three days of national mourning.
