But despite the touching moment in honour of Messi’s late Argentine compatriot, the LaLiga ref still saw fit to brandish a yellow card.
Maradona died on Wednesday aged 60 after suffering a heart attack and the latest news suggests the house of his personal doctor was searched by cops amid reports his passing is being treated as manslaughter.
