Argentine legend Diego Maradona has been filmed slapping a journalist.

The confrontation took place as the 53-year-old was leaving a theatre where he had taken his son – Diego Fernando – to see a children’s play.

It has been reported the journalist winked at the mother of the child – his ex-partner Veronica Ojeda.

TheĀ 1986 World Cup winning captainĀ said: “Why mess with my wife if I do not mess with you?”

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

In 1994, he was handed a suspended jail sentence for shooting at journalists with an air rifle outside his home.
