In a shocking turn of events, the social media account of the late football legend Diego Maradona was reportedly hacked.

The incident caused a stir among fans and followers worldwide, who were taken aback by the unexpected posts appearing on Maradona’s account.

After several strange messages appeared on Tuesday on Diego Maradona’s social media handles, Maradona’s kin and management team promptly addressed the situation and confirmed that it was a hack.

They also advised followers to ignore any posts made during the breach

“We regret to inform you that Diego Maradona’s official Facebook account has suffered a cyber attack“, Maradona’s family informed in a statement.

“We are working to reverse this hacking as soon as possible,” they added.

There is still no information about why this data breach occurred or who is responsible.

Around midnight a message of support for footballer Vinicius first appeared.

“You know I faked my death, no?” It was the first post that attracted attention on the Facebook account.

This was followed by other messages, such as “There is no coke here in heaven. Just Pepsi”, “One Piece is better than any other current anime” and “Long live Messi, Cr7 is an ******”.
