    The Argentine football league has restarted following the country's emotional goodbye to Diego Maradona

    The Argentine football league has restarted following the country's emotional goodbye to Diego Maradona


    The main domestic competition was hastily renamed the Diego Maradona Cup, and games in the first stage of group matches kicked off across the country after a minute's applause from those present in fan-free stadiums.

    Referees wore shirts with "Gracias Diego" emblazoned on the back, and players dedicated goals to the former World Cup star who this week died from a heart attack aged 60.

    Two of Maradona's three former Argentine clubs, Boca Juniors and Newell's Old Boys, play each other tomorrow in what promises to be an emotional return to the field.
