Looking at most front page headlines on Diego Maradona, you would wonder if the football genius ever used his foot

Football-crazy Bengal has easily beaten football-crazy Kerala and football-crazy Goa in its coverage of the passing of Argentinian legend Diego Maradona.

The Bengali daily Anandabazar Patrika (above) has a classy front page, and calm and unckuttered inside pages, in contrast to the early editions of Malayala Manorama and Mathrubhumi (below).


The Goan newspapers are neither here nor there.


Alone among the major English newspapers, The Telegraph pays a rich tribute on page one without invoking “hand” or ” god” in is headline.


Looking at most of the rest you would be wondering if Maradona ever used his foot.
