Thousands of fans are paying their final respects as the body of football legend Diego Maradona lies in state at Casa Rosada, the government palace.
The Argentine football legend remains will remain there for three days of national mourning and the coffin is expected to be on public display until Thursday afternoon.
The former Argentina attacking midfielder and manager died at his home in Tigre, near Buenos Aires following a heart attack on Wednesday at the age of 60.
Maradona is survived by five children and his former wife, 58-year-old Claudia Villafane, who he split with in 2004 after 20 years of marriage.
Maradona was one of the two joint winners of the FIFA Player of the 20th Century award and he is widely regarded as one of the greatest football players of all time, and by many as the greatest ever.
