Diego Maradona

A wine named after Argentine football legend Diego Maradona will be launched in his native country shortly, his agent Guillermo Coppola told radio Mitre.

Coppola said that the "Maradona" wine label would be available in different flavours.

"Those which Diego and I tasted were very good wine. He even brought some back to Cuba with him," said Coppola. "Diego chose the lables and participated a little in the launch."

Maradona led Argentina to World Cup win in 1986, but the 42-year-old is now living in Cuba where he went to seek treatment for cocaine addiction.
