2013 marks the 42nd time the United Arab Emirates have celebrated their national day. 

Naturally, this calls for a celebration. Less naturally, it apparently also calls for Diego Maradona to put on the traditional local dress and do some dancing.

Maradona is no stranger to the region, having had a spell as manager of Al Wasl, which ended last year.

He wasn't the only footballing figure to get involved Thursday; Thierry Henry was also spotted in traditional garb.

Hat-tip to 101 Great Goals for the video.
