Diego Maradona played soccer or football professionally for Argentina. He played in the 1980s and 1990s. As a matter of fact, he played in the 1982, 1986, 1990 and 1994 World Cups. Diego Maradona is known for his skills in dribbling and ball control. He could pass well and really was able to set up good plays.

However, soccer players like Diego Maradona must exercise a lot and keep in shape while they are playing for a national team. However, once the soccer player stops playing, then they usually do not keep in shape as much. Also, Diego is known for using drugs and having health issues. Both of these reasons could have been what caused Diego to put on weight.

Diego Maradona is known to be one of the best soccer players in Argentina. He helped his team reach two world cup titles.It cannot be denied however that he became fat throughout his career. This is because of drugs and the type of lifestyle that he had. He had to fight cocaine addiction and it was not easy.

It is not always easy for anyone to let go of drug addiction. He had cardiac arrest issues but he went through a surgery that saved his life. He was able to kick the habit and get rid of the excess weight. He is now healthier and is still known as one of the players that are respected by people.
