Diego Simeone congratulates son Giovanni for Argentina U-20 win
Diego Simeone has taken to social media to congratulate his son Giovanni Simeone after Argentina's under-20 side beat hosts Uruguay 2-1 in Montevideo and won the U-20 South American Championship for the first time in 12 years.
Atletico coach Diego was celebrating his team's 4-0 win over Real Madrid, but watched as Argentina went behind to Gaston Pereiro, before goals from Sebastian Driussi and Angel Correa turned it around.
He then found time to tweet: "The effort and work have their reward, son. Enjoy it with your team."

Giovanni finished as the tournament's top scorer with nine goals in 10 matches and Argentina ended as the top-scoring team with 24 goals in 10 games.
After missing out on London 2012, the result means that Argentina have taken the one guaranteed qualification spot for next year's Olympics in Brazil and qualify for the under-20 World Cup in New Zealand in May.
Here at Toe Poke, we're just pleased that the young No. 9 has decided to move on from possibly the worst haircut in football, which he sported for River Plate back in 2013.
