Diego Maradona recreates 'Hand of God' goal in friendly with schoolkids

Diego Maradona
Diego Maradona recreated his 'Hand of God' goal in South Korea on Tuesday.

In their roles as FIFA ambassadors, both Diego Maradona and Pablo Aimar flew in to South Korea on Tuesday to help promote the upcoming draw for the Under-20 World Cup.

As part of their duties, the Argentinian pair both took to the pitch in Hwaseong Haenggung Square in Suwon for a friendly kick around with a group of local schoolkids.

Ever the entertainer, Maradona amused his audience by recreating the infamous "Hand of God" goal that ultimately sent England home from the 1986 World Cup.

Indeed, the 56-year-old took to the air (well, sort of) and punched the ball past the goalkeeper before celebrating with another of his iconic poses: the wild, swivel-eyed stare down the camera that followed his goal against Greece at the 1994 World Cup.

Maradona, proving once again that he has absolutely no remorse over his past transgressions.

Long may he reign!
