Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi and the rest of the FC Barcelona players observed a minute of silence to honour ex Barcelona player Diego Maradona on Friday. The minute silence took place during a training session at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper in Barcelona.

Maradona played for Barcelona between 1982 and 1984, helping them towards lifting the Copa del Rey in his first season.

'D10s' as he was often known, became football's biggest superstar in the 1980's by leading Argentina to a World Cup victory in 1986 and carrying Napoli to their only ever Italian titles in the 1986-87 and 1989-90 seasons.

Maradona passed away aged 60 on Wednesday. He was hospitalised two weeks ago, to remove a blood clot from his brain, and released eight days later following a successful operation.

The Argentine government has decreed three days of national mourning after Maradona's death
