    Argentina's rugby team is grieving the loss of Diego Maradona

    Argentina's rugby team is grieving the loss of Diego Maradona


    The football icon is being remembered after his death from a heart attack aged 60.

    Coach Mario Ledesma says he remembers watching the 1986 World Cup win as a 13-year-old.



    Ledesma says they will stop short of retiring Maradona's famous 10 shirt for the night, but are preparing to use his legacy as motivation in the re-match against the All Blacks tomorrow in Newcastle.
