VIDEO: Diego Maradona Slaps Argentinian Journalist For ‘Winking At His Ex-Wife’

Diego Maradona is at the centre of another controversy involving his hands – this time for slapping a journalist in the face.

The 53-year-old was travelling with his children in Buenos Aires when he was stopped by a series of reporters.

And in a bizarre turn of events, the Argentinian legend exited his car before angrily confronting one particular journalist.

Maradona is filmed calling the man an “idiot” before striking him across the face.

The reporter in question is alleged to have winked at Maradona’s ex-wife Veronica Ojeda, who is also the mother of his child Diego Fernando.
