Madonna is trending on Twitter after fans of the Queen of Pop confused her with legendary footballer Diego Maradona. Considering twitter was flooded with tribute messages for both the legends, the rumour around Madonna's death spread far and wide on Twitter.

Others were happy to let mock tributes flow for the pop star.

Maradona died on Wednesday after suffering a massive heart attack. A nurse who was with him following his hospital release could not revive him.

It didn't take long for people to realise what was going on and soon the inevitable flood of jokes started coming in, leaving us with a deluge of honest (albeit premature) tributes to Madonna mixed in with those taking the piss out of people getting Maradona mixed up with someone who sang "Like A Virgin".

The office of Argentina's president will decree three days of national mourning because of Maradona's death today, and the Argentine football association expressed its sorrow on Twitter. Maradona had recently undergone a surgery to remove a blood clot in the brain, and was under observation at home.
