Well, you can never get enough of Maradona news, and his hands that are full of surprises.
Diego Maradona’s personal life and relation with Rocio Oliva has been recently under the spotlight for a multitude of reasons.
From alleged attempts of beating her, to singing in public for her, and now ‘fingering her’.
That’s ‘right hand’ for you
There is no shame in seeing someone enjoying his sex life with his teammate, but the shame is for those who are making a fuss about every kiss or ‘sentimental’ or intimate moment Diego Maradona is spending, even in private, with Rocio Oliva.
When did swimming become a crime?
In other unimportant news, Maradona must pay the legal expenses of Shanghai Shenhua team coach Sergio Batista for alleging he took bribes from national players, an Argentine court has ruled. The ruling by a criminal court in the Argentinean capital, Buenos Aires, called for Maradona to pay Batista’s legal team 39,000 pesos (about 4,600 dollars).
Doesn’t she wish he used the ‘hand of god’ itself?

Ending the endless talks about whether the next two World Cup tournaments will be held in Russia 2018 and Qatar 2022, FIFA has come to a conclusion: Nothing is wrong and they will be hosted as planned.
The investigatory chamber and the adjudicatory chamber and the independent Ethics Committee and Hercules and Zeus and the farmer in lala-land have looked into the matter and concluded: Long Live Sepp Blatter.
Now let us all go back to our normal life and see how we will prepare to attend Russia 2018 while leaving the wives behind, at home.
Some days ago, the world went crazy after seeing Maradona’s alleged attempt to hit his girlfriend (wife, ex-fiance, love, etc.) Rocio Oliva.
The relation between Diego and what’s her face has just taken another U-turn when they attended a product launch in Dubai. She was sitting next to him (that’s her in the photo, right?), when Maradona decided to start singing for her. [VIDEO HERE]
I can love you and hit you and kiss you and sing for you and I am still the same Maradona
For the records, the incident answers most of the questions I had here, and for the records too, Maradona and Rocio Oliva have broken up and reunited several times during the course of their relationship, and the couple were even engaged for a short time before breaking it off.
Happy Birthday Diego Armando Maradona… Eternal Legend…
In 3 years and 8 months, Russia 2018 World Cup will kick off.
A major milestone en route to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia was reached during the unveiling of the tournament’s official emblem* in Moscow.
The unveiling was done in an exotic way. Three astronauts at the Russian space station revealed the hotly-anticipated new World Cup Emblem from their space capsule and subsequently the visual icon for the 2018 World Cup in Russia was brought into the television studio to rapturous applause. The launch was simultaneously complemented by a huge light projection on the historic Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow.
