Diego Maradona led the celebrations inside the Argentina dressing room after their rugby World Cup win over Tonga earlier today.
The footballing legend travelled all the way over to Leicester to take in the Pumas’ 45-16 victory over Tonga which leaves them just a point away from the quarter-finals.
And after such a big win, he couldn’t resist entering the team dressing room to celebrate with the jubilant players.
Maradona can be seen dancing and leading the chants among the delighted Argentine squad:

Maradona has also set a target to the Argentina squad – telling them he’ll return to cheer them on if they can make the semi-finals of the competition.
Full-back Joaquin Tuculet said:
Maradona said he’ll come back if we reach the semifinal.
That was fantastic, I love football, I love soccer, I love him. That situation was great. I think it’s very important for us, Maradona is the best player in the world — for me it’s something unexplainable.
What great scenes from the man referred to as a God in Argentina after single-handedly leading the football team to become world champions in 1986.
