Diego Maradona started consuming cocaine in the 1980s. It was the time when he was at heights in his career. After that, he developed an addiction to drugs and alcohol. Because of this, he was also banned for 15 months by Napoli in 1996. And he was also arrested for consuming half a kilogram of cocaine in the same year. In that very year, he also made an official statement that he is and always will be a drug addict.
In 2004 he suffered from a heart attack and went through gastric bypass surgery a year after that. In 2007 he was hospitalized again. All this made him realize his mistakes and then he finally stopped taking drugs.
He was hospitalized recently and just two weeks after his discharge he died due to a heart attack on November 25.
