Shah Rukh Khan recalls how Diego Maradona made football 'even more beautiful': May you enthral heaven

Legendary footballer Diego Maradona passed away after suffering a cardiac arrest on Wednesday. The iconic player led Argentina to victory in the 1986 World Cup. The former Argentina attacking midfielder and manager is widely known as the greatest player of all time. The demise of the legendary footballer has saddened several across the world, including Bollywood celebrities and one of them is Shah Rukh Khan. King Khan took to his social media handle to mourn the demise of Maradona.

Taking to Instagram, SRK wrote, “Diego made football even more beautiful. You will be sorely missed and may you entertain and enthral heaven as you did this world. RIP (sic)." 

Shah Rukh Khan, who owns several cricket teams, is an ardent football game fan too.

The incident even caught the attention of Shah Rukh Khan, who is a big fan of the sport. 

At the time, the Bollywood superstar had tweeted about Maradona’s antics. He wrote, “Uff this Maradona adds so much stress. Love the Nigerian team but have to have Argentina in the play offs. My Phews continue…(sic).”
