Shortly after Diego Maradona’s death was confirmed today, at the age of 60, artists rushed to pay homage to the Argentine star with cartoons. The most recurring theme in the illustrations was the “hand of God” episode, as Maradona himself defined the decisive goal he scored at the 1986 World Cup.
In the quarter-finals of the tournament, Maradona used his hand on his head to score the winning goal 2-1 over England. Led by him, the Argentine team then went on to the World Cup title, the only one he won with his country.
After the match against the English, the Argentine star was asked about the controversial goal, validated by the referee for thinking it was a header.
“I scored a little with my head and a little with the hand of God,” replied Maradona, making history with the statement.
Some cartoons show the Argentine “returning” his hand to God. In another illustration, God asks Maradona to return his left foot, since the ace was left-handed.
There were also references to the political performance of the Argentine, a declared admirer of leaders and historical figures of the left, such as the guerrilla Che Guevara and the Cuban leader Fidel Castro, of whom Maradona had even done tattoos.
