Maradona is taken in funeral cortege on highway
The body of Argentinian soccer legend Diego Maradona was being transported to a Buenos Aires cemetery on Thursday evening.
The hearse carrying his coffin raced down a sunny highway, surrounded by motorbikes, as crowds cheered.
Earlier Thursday, tens of thousands of fans, many weeping, filed past Maradona's coffin, in ceremonies that mixed head-of-state-like honors with the chaos of a rowdy stadium.
Fans singing soccer anthems, some draped in the national flag, formed a line more than 20 blocks long stretching from the Plaza de Mayo where Argentines gathered to celebrate the Maradona-led triumph in the 1986 World Cup.
Maradona died on Wednesday of a heart attack in a house outside Buenos Aires where he had been recovering from a brain operation on Nov. 3.
