Maradona was buried next to his parents, in the presence of a limited number of mourners.

Football legend Diego Armando Maradona was transferred to his final resting place, Friday, and was buried in the Garden Bella Vista cemetery on the Argentine capital’s outskirts, Buenos Aires, next to his parents.

The funeral ceremony was short, as there were 30 family members and relatives of the Argentine legend, who died, on Wednesday, at the age of 60, after a heart attack.

Maradona’s body was found on Thursday in Casa Rosada, the Argentine federal government’s headquarters, as large numbers of citizens queued to say goodbye to the late star before it was transported to the Cemetery of the Garden Bella Vista, 400 kilometers from the capital.
