Amazon is making a documentary series about legendary footballer Maradona. The biopic will highlight the triumphs and trials of the Argentinian, who is most famous for his 'hand of God' goal against England in the 1986 World Cup semi-final.

In his personal life, Maradona has struggled with drug addiction.

The series will encompass his early life, his prolific career playing for Argentina and clubs in Spain and Italy, as well as his role leading his national team to victory in the 1986 Word Cup.

"There are few players whose notoriety transcends generations and geographic borders – Maradona is a household name around the world, and his career highlights are still discussed today among the biggest moments in soccer's history," said Brad Beale, vice president, worldwide TV content acquisition at Amazon Prime Video. "We’re excited to bring Prime Video members on this incredible journey."

Francisco Cordero, co-founder and CEO of series producer BTF Media, added: "The story will feature an unprecedented look at Maradona, not only as a champion but also as a man. Together with Prime Video, Dhana Media and Raze we are diving deep into the essence of the story and working on all of its aspects to bring it to a global audience."
