Diego Maradona Does a Fist Pump with the Pope

John GreelyB/R UK StaffSeptember 5, 2014

Diego Maradona met Pope Francis in Rome this week, and celebrated like...well, like a man who had just met the Pope.

Argentina's two most famous people (or at least two of the three) met while Maradona was in town for a charity football match.

Sadly, as far as we can tell, the Pope did not reciprocate with a fist pump of his own.
