The Argentina legend turned 60 on Friday, with TYC Sports getting several sportsmen to congratulate the 1986 FIFA World Cup winner.

Among them was Ronaldo, who sent Maradona a video message.

Ronaldo's words translate to: "Hello Diego (Maradona), how are you?

"I want to say congratulations for your 60th birthday, wish you the best, enjoy life, big hug brother!

"You are the number one, but after El Bicho (Cristiano) eh? See you."

Maradona recently insisted that Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are the two best players of their generation and that no one will come close to their achievements.
