Maradona given angel wings by craftsman in Naples

Craftsman in a shop on Via San Gregorio Armeno, the Naples street famous for nativity scenes, was quick to add wings onto their figurines of the Argentine soccer legend after the announcement of his death.

For Neapolitans, the Argentine soccer legend Maradona is more a god than an angel. But at least now he can join them at Christmas, watching over them in his Napoli number 10 soccer shirt.

Nearby, a bar owner takes pride in a shrine dedicated to the legend, with a piece of Maradona's hair rotating in a glass cube as the centrepiece.
