New deplorable show of Diego Maradona driving his car. Asked about his health by a journalist from Argentina, “El Pibe de Oro” had obviously drunk a few extra glasses this Tuesday. He struggles to articulate his answers and to make himself understood, seems hesitant and weakened. Paradoxically, he says “to be in good health”, despite the discomfort he had suffered at the end of the 1 / 8th finals France-Argentina.

Yet, the former glory of Argentine football did not drink that white wine during his post-career. He had already fought against drugs in 2004 before suffering a discomfort due to too much alcohol consumption in 2007. Since then, he chained media escapades. Criticism of his team, violence against his wife, bloody journalist … and suspicion of cocaine use since the publication of a video on Twitter in late June. The 57-year-old player with a bag of white powder is seen on his plane en route to Russia.
