As Argentina grabbed a late winner in their final group game in the World Cup against Nigeria, an emotional Diego Maradona got really wild and responded in an explicit manner.

Maradona later fell unwell and a video emerged of him being helped by two people in his entourage into a chair. Photographs showed the 57-year-old being tended to by parademics.

Maradona has always been known for his antics, he scored a goal in 1986 against England with his hand, referred by people as the hand of GOD. On being asked about it this year, in an interview, he said he was "not sorry back then, not sorry now, not even 30 years later from now or even on his death bed," completely dissing the fair play of football.

This World Cup has a no tobacco initiative, Maradona beholding his reputation, was seen smoking a cigar in the stadium in the first match that Argentina played.

Reacting on Maradona's celebration, BBC presenter Gary Lineker said, "He's let himself down with that celebration. You understand how he's euphoric, but this kind of reaction... Really, Diego?"

Maradona was pictured in the early hours of Wednesday morning on a private jet destined for Moscow.
