Argentine footballing icon, Diego Maradona, has died at aged 60, but certain social media users went through a case of mistaken identity as they were seen mourning for pop star, Madonna instead.
Madonna started trending on Twitter last night and this caused confusion among some netizens who were questioning the story at first. Although, some were quick to post their tributes for the Like A Prayer singer, who is very much alive.
Maradona, the former World Cup winner with Argentina died of a heart attack, having undergone brain surgery earlier this month. Twitter was quickly lit up with tributes and RIP messages for the singer instead, Twitter users then corrected their own mistakes by pointing out the facts of Maradona from Madonna.
To put this frenzy to an end, Madonna is alive, well and of course, singing; Diego Maradona on the other hand, has sadly passed away and is fortunately remembered many in the footballing community, there’s a difference.
