Residents of Buenos Aires, Argentina, collectively clapped and sounded car horns at 10 pm on November 25 in honour of World Cup-winning soccer star Diego Maradona, who died aged 60.

According to local reports, the clapping began at 10 pm local time, a time chosen because of Maradona’s number 10 jersey.

Argentina’s president announced they would decree a three-day mourning period for Maradona, reports said.

Maradona had a highly decorated career, playing over 180 games for Italian Serie A club Napoli, winning two titles, and making 91 appearances for Argentina, including leading the team to win the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

A spokesperson for Maradona said the star died on Wednesday of a heart attack two weeks after being released from hospital following brain surgery, according to reports. Credit: Doble Jota via Storyful
