The confrontation took place as the 53-year-old left a theatre where he had taken his son - Diego Fernando - to see a children's play on Argentina's Day of the Child.

It has been reported the journalist winked at the mother of the former Barcelona and Napoli player's son - his ex-partner Veronica Ojeda.

Maradona, who won the World Cup as a player in 1986 and also managed his country from 2008 to 2010, is no stranger to confrontations with journalists.

In 1994, he was handed a suspended jail sentence of two years and 10 months for shooting at journalists with an air rifle outside his home. Four people were injured in the incident.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
