Lionel Messi showed his grief after the passing of Argentina hero Diego Maradona.

On Wednesday it was confirmed that the World Cup winner had passed away after suffering a heart attack, prompting tributes to flood in from across the world.

Portugal icon and five-time Ballon d’Or winner Cristiano Ronaldo was among those to grieve the loss of the “eternal genius” on social media.

“A very sad day for all Argentines and for football. He’s left us but he hasn’t gone, because Diego is eternal,” he wrote alongside pictures of the two of them together.

“I’ll keep all the great times I enjoyed with him and want to take the opportunity to send my deepest respects to all his family and friends. RIP.”

Messi was long seen as the heir to Maradona’s throne as the king of Argentine and indeed world football.
