A strong bond that the journalist revealed on Instagram, recounting the pain of losing her friend. Rossi passed away at the age of 64 after having struggled for a long time with an incurable disease.

After retiring from football, Paolo Rossi had become a much loved TV face. The former footballer had carved out the role of commentator in sports competitions. Before he had collaborated with Sky Sport and Mediaset Premium, and then moved to Rai in 2018 where he had followed several games and had become a regular presence on Domenica Sportiva with Marco Tardelli.
A legend on the pitch, a man with a heart of gold outside: Paolo Rossi with his kindness, polite manners and smile had managed to deeply touch many people. Among them Paola Ferrari who, just like his wife Federica Cappelletti, wanted to remember him on Instagram, amid snapshots of life and anecdotes. “My heart stops with yours – explained the presenter -. You are the most beautiful, most sincere, humble and wonderful person I have ever had by my side ".
