Diego Maradona allegedly caught making racist gesture during Argentina vs Iceland match

Diego Maradona has been accused of making a racist gesture to football supporters during Argentina and Iceland’s World Cup match yesterday.

According to BBC reporter Jacqui Oatley, Maradona greeted some of South Korea’s fans before apparently producing a racist gesture by ‘pulling his eyes to the side’

Fellow sports presenter Seema Jaswal backed Oatley’s claims – made from inside the Otkrytiye Arena.

She said: “I’m sat right next to Jacqui and saw Maradona’s gesture.

“He should know better. The lads filming him were so excited to get a picture of him and that was his response. Very disappointing.”

The controversy doesn’t stop there with Maradona unsurprisingly.

He was snapped smoking a cigar the match on Saturday… during the “smoke-free” World Cup.

The Argentine legend, was spotted puffing on a fat cigar despite massive signs around the ground urging fans not to light-up.

He certainly doesn’t care one bit!
