Manchester United icon Ryan Giggs says Diego Maradona is the greatest.

Giggs was awarded the Golden Foot for 2011 last night in Monaco.

He told TMW: "The best of all time? Maradona. I admired him in the World Cups of 1986 and 1990 and the arc of his career.

"Today there are so many strong players such as Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, but the things I have seen Maradona do I have not ever seen anyone else achieve in football history."
