Snapshot Classic: a teenage Diego Maradona wakes up in his bedroom


28th, October 2007


January 1980 Diego Maradona, aged 19, stretches as he prepares to get out of bed at home in Argentina. Note the teddy bear and I Love Soccer sticker on his wall. Aw, he was just like any other teenager – except he was also the most talented young footballer in the world. And a teddy bear at 19? Bless.

    Doesn’t he look like Mika?

    He looks more like he’s practicing the “hand of God” incident with his teddy bear playing the role of Peter Shilton. Come to think of it, he’s 19 and has a Teddy.
