Albion stars past and present have been paying tribute to Diego Maradona.

The Argentina superstar has died after suffering a heart attack. He was 60.

Seagulls goalkeeper Maty Ryan was among those to mark his passing on Instagram as the news broke from Buenos Aires this afternoon.

Argentinean striker Leo Ulloa, now with Rayo Vallecano in Madrid, typed QPED, standing for Rest In Peace in Spanish followed by: "Thanks for so much."

Compatriot Ezequiel Schelotto, who parted company with the Seagulls this year but remains in the city, posted a similar message and added: “You'll always be the No.1.”

He also posted a picture of himself with Maradona with the words: "We will miss you, God." 



Former Albion head coach Oscar Garcia chose a photo of Maradona during his difficult stint at Barcelona and wrote: "One of football's greatest has gone. RIP."

Ex-Seagulls striker Bobby Zamora hailed Maradona as “the greatest”.

Anthony Knockaert added: “Rest in peace Champion.”

Mac Allister's emotional message to Diego

Current Albion midfielder Alexis Mac Allister followed Maradona’s path by playing for Argentinos Juniors and Boca Juniors.
