There were many mistakes made because Diego died, they inflated and inflated the poor guy until his heart exploded.

The courts have even opened an investigation to try to find out if the Lanus native was abandoned by his family in order to get their inheritance. Matias Morla told the court what Maradona was like when he last saw him, a few days before his death.

When I entered the house, he had a strange, robotic voice, very high-pitched and intermittent, I informed everyone of Diego's condition. I then realised that it was because of the amount of water retained in his body.
