Social networking sites swept a moving picture of the living legend Pele bids farewell to his friend Diego Maradona in front of his grave, and the picture won thousands of likes and spread widely, but the picture was not real.
Several accounts on "Twitter" re-posted a picture of the Brazilian soccer legend holding a bouquet of flowers kneeling in front of a tomb inscribed with the name Diego Maradona in Latin letters with the date of birth and death, accompanied by poignant nostalgic quotes.
But it turned out that the image was fabricated, and a simple Google search revealed that this photo was from Gettyimages, and it is common in funeral homes.
The fabricator of the picture simply concealed the real features by adding a few color effects to the image that was white and added Pele's face, and also attached Maradona's name to the empty tombstone.
It is important to remember that Pele, 80, is in a critical condition and recently used a wheelchair to move around, and the Brazilian is unlikely to be able to squat easily.
Maradona is considered one of the greatest footballers of all time, and he helped Argentina win the World Cup in 1986.
Maradona played football for Boca Juniors, Naples, Barcelona, and others, and was adored by millions for his wonderful skills.
The legend scored 206 goals over the course of his career in various clubs, most notably Barcelona, Spain, Napoli, and Boca Juniors, Argentina, and he also scored 34 goals with his country's first team.
