Fans of the footballing legend, who died last month at the age of 60, show the tributes they carry with them.

Under his shirt, pizza shop owner Guillermo Rodriguez is a walking shrine to Diego Maradona. His entire back is covered in tattoos depicting the soccer great, whose death last month at the age of 60 inspired enormous grief in Argentina and beyond.

Argentina declared several days of national mourning and his body lay in state at the presidential palace.

“It is something beautiful to live with him, so for us he did not die; he will continue being there for all of us. The love we have is eternal,” says Rodriguez, whose pizza store is called “Siempre al 10”, referring to the number of Maradona’s jersey.
