He might be getting on a bit in age but Diego Maradona has been proving today that he has lost little of his fighting spirit from his youth.
Having dabbled in coaching, the legendary Argentine World Cup winner is beginning a new role as a FIFA ambassador, having embraced the new president Gianni Infantino.
But less than a week into his new job and things aren’t going quite to plan for Diego.
Earlier this week, it was revealed he’d been questioned by police over an heated argument with his girlfriend and then, earier today when approached by a reporter, the former Napoli and Barcelona forward struggled to keep a leash on his famous temper:
Fifa ambassador, Diego Maradona, to reporter in Madrid: "if I hit you, you will lose your nose..if I fight you one-on-one, I'll destroy you"

To be fair, he might have a fiery temper, but Maradona and the new FIFA is A LOT better than when Sepp Blatter and his cronies were in charge.
Probably best to seek a bit of anger management though, Diego.
