Watch Diego Maradona in touching training footage with double amputee as Argentine legend shows his caring side

DIEGO MARADONA'S heart of gold was on full display in a touching video showing the Argentine legend training with a double amputee.

The incredible uplifting clip has been doing the rounds on social media following the World Cup winner's death this week.

Maradona sadly passed away, aged 60, on Wednesday after suffering a heart attack at his home in Buenos Aires.

Tributes have poured in from the likes of Pele, Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham and Usain Bolt.

His death has also left fans from all over the world reminiscing about the Napoli and Argentina icon's kind nature.

And no video has better shown that than the time Maradona played football with double amputee Ali Turganbekov in 2018.

The then-nine-year-old - who has also had a kickaround with Cristiano Ronaldo last year - first reached out to one of his other heroes.

Maradona duly responded to Kazakh lad Ali, who was born without legs, to fulfill his dreams of a one-on-one session.

One fan tweeted: "That's amazing! Beautiful stuff from the legend. You won't ever be forgotten GOAT."

Another said: "Brings a lump to your throat."

A third added: "Billions billions of people on this earth throughout history and yet only a few are remembered, Maradona will be 1 of them."

The last known photo of Maradona also shows him smiling while in hospital.

One of the most gifted football players in history, his pinnacle of glory came when he captained Argentina to win the World Cup in 1986.
