(CNN)Soccer icon Pele has paid a moving tribute to his "great friend" Diego Maradona after the Argentine died at the age of 60 after suffering a cardiac arrest on Wednesday.

Both men are considered two of the greatest soccer players in history and come from similarly humble backgrounds.

"I have lost a great friend and the world lost a legend," wrote Pele, who turned 80 last month, on Twitter.

"There is still much to be said, but for now, may God give strength to his family members. One day, I hope, we will play football together in heaven."
