VIDEO: Diego Maradona Facing Backlash After Footage Allegedly Shows Him Hitting His Ex-Fiancee

Footage has emerged allegedly showing Diego Maradona hitting his ex-fiancee Rocío Oliva.

The story comes from Spanish newspaper El Mundo and shows Oliva secretly filming the Argentina football legend telling her to keep looking at her phone before striking her.

Oliva pleads:

“Stop, loco, why can’t I look at my phone?

Stop! Stop! Stop hitting, Diego!”

It’s believed the couple broke up in June – sparking a public feud between the pair.

Oliva claimed she had suffered from domestic abuse at the hands of Maradona, and she had evidence to prove it, but they eventually got back together only to split again.

And now, with the break-up official, Oliva has released the footage to shock the nation who adore Maradona:
