Diego Maradona tried to recreate his infamous ‘hand of God’ goal in a kickaround with South Korean schoolkids – but this time he was booked

Maradona and former Valencia midfielder Pablo Aimar were in Suwon to help promote the upcoming draw for the Under-20 World Cup in their roles as FIFA ambassadors.

And never one to miss an opportunity to entertain, Maradona saw an opportunity to try punch the ball into the back of the net – a la his effort against England at the 1986 World Cup.

But the 56-year-old couldn’t quite get the technique right and instead diverted the ball away from goal before receiving a yellow card from the referee.

Earlier on, the former Boca Juniors, Barcelona and Napoli attacker also recreated his iconic celebration against Greece at the 1994 World Cup.

Some people were just born to entertain – and El Diego remains one of the best.
