Two Argentinian couples won the world’s biggest tango competition, Buenos Aires hosted the competition on Saturday. At the end of festival dancers paid tribute to late legendary soccer player and long-time tango fan Diego Maradona.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic competition held through a combination of in-person and virtual events, this year’s world tango dance championship involved around 800 dancers from 25 countries.

The finals were staged in front of the illuminated Buenos Aires Obelisk at the heart of the Argentine capital.

Couple Emmanuel Casel and Yanina Muzyka won the “stage tango” category, while Agustin Agnez and  Barbara Ferreyra were crowned winners of the “salon” category.

Throughout the competition, songs and dances paid homage to Argentine sports great Diego Maradona, who died of a heart attack on November 25 last year at aged 60.

Widely regarded as one of the best soccer players of all time, the captain of Argentina’s 1986 World Cup-winning team had recorded tango songs as an amateur singer and was known to show off his dancing skills at parties.

The tango competition coincided with the reopening of Buenos Aires’ famed “milongas” or tango salons after the pandemic outbreak had forced them to shut for 18 months.
