Internet manages to surprise you on a daily basis.
The Argentinian soccer legend has passed away at the age of 60 in Buenos Aires, according to the Argentinian newspaper Clarín on Wednesday (November 25). But along with Maradona, Queen Of Pop Madonna too started trending on Twitter thanks to some confused and ignorant fans.
It didn't take long for people to realise what was going on and soon the inevitable flood of jokes started coming in, leaving us with a deluge of honest (albeit premature) tributes to Madonna mixed in with those taking the piss out of people getting Maradona mixed up with someone who sang "Like A Virgin".
After news broke of the footballer's death, fans flocked to Twitter to mistakenly grieve the singer. This comes days after Maradona underwent a brain surgery. The iconic footballer was to continue treatment for his alcohol dependency and was expected to stay close to where his daughters stay.
Diego Maradona, the Argentine football great who was among the best players ever and who led his country to the 1986 World Cup title, has died.
