Diego Armando Maradona, who rose from the slums of Buenos Aires to lead Argentina's national team to victory in the 1986 World Cup, lost his way through substance abuse and then pursued a second career as a coach, died Wednesday at the age of 60, according to media reports.

He reportedly suffered a heart attack at his home in a suburb of Buenos Aires.

Argentina's 3-2 victory over West Germany in 1986 made Maradona a national hero. While Maradona did not score in the match, he is credited with a pinpoint pass to fellow countryman Jorge Burruchaga who scored in the 86th minute, allowing Argentina to pull ahead for good.

As word of Maradona's death spread, tributes to the soccer legend began pouring in.

The Argentine Football Association tweeted its deepest sorrow at Maradona's passing.
