Now, a show about his life has been given the green light, and will air in the UK exclusively on Prime Video.
A statement from Amazon stated that the show would chart Maradona’s early life as well as his prolific career, and how he was instrumental in Argentina winning the World Cup in ’86.
Amazon’s Brad Beale said: “There are few players whose notoriety transcends generations and geographic borders – Maradona is a household name around the world, and his career highlights are still discussed today among the biggest moments in soccer’s history.
“We’re excited to bring Prime Video members on this incredible journey.”
