ITV Reporter Accuses Diego Maradona Of Racist Gesture At World Cup Game

ITV Reporter Accuses Diego Maradona Of Racist Gesture At World Cup Game
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

Diego Maradona is currently at the World Cup in Russia and was in attendance today during Argentina's opening Group D game against Iceland. It is while at this game that the Argentine legend was accused of a racist gesture towards nearby South Korean fans.

BBC Sports journalist and presenter Jacqui Oatley has accused the 57-year-old of making a racist gesture towards fans who called towards him.

Oatley had earlier reported that Maradona arrived smoking a lit cigar and posed for pictures, while fans continually called towards him during the game. The in-game camera showed him within the ground sporting bright red sunglasses and two watches.

In the past, Maradona has coached Argentina at the World Cup when he led them to South Africa in 2010. His last managerial job was last year when he coached Dubai-based Fujairah before leaving at the end of the year.
