Thousands of people tried to enter the Casa Rosada on Thursday to fire Diego Armando Maradona, who died at the age of 60.

The doors of Balcarce 50 were opened to the public after the farewell closed for relatives and, from that moment, moments of tension were repeated with the police trying to order the entrance.

Thousands of fans are waiting to enter and a few who, meters from the main entrance, clashed with the police officers guarding the entrance.

They blew up some fences, bottles and there were blows with the police.

The pushing and tension were repeated each time the troops closed the access of a group of people who entered the Government House.

Incidents at Maradona's farewell.

The police operation is similar to that of entering a field on a busy match day.

Hundreds of troops deployed on Avenida de Mayo and near the esplanade. 

With the passing of the minutes, the Police managed to order the entry of the thousands of people who traveled the blocks since the early morning to try to be near Maradona to fire him.

The pilgrimage began on the same Wednesday.

It is that just hours after confirming the death of the star and the Government and the family agreed that the wake would be at the Casa Rosada, hundreds of fans arrived at the place and waited.

It was a night of vigil while Maradona's family, friends and former colleagues were inside the Government House.
