Video featuring ‘fake’ Maradona goes viral

  • The person in the video is not Maradona

Legendary football player Diego Maradona has often been in the news. Be it his coaching stints or his appearances in football stadiums to watch live matches, the Argentine football icon often becomes the talk of the town on social media.

Now, a video is going viral on social media which claims of the person featuring in the video being Maradona has been made. That, however, is not the truth!

Football fans were left in shock when a video has gone viral where a Maradona lookalike was spotted hitting tennis balls up in the air using his feet. While there’s no doubt that Maradona has gained weight over the years, the man in the video looked even bulkier than how the footballing superstar was last seen in public.

Much to the relief of fans, the person in the video is not Maradona. The video which is going viral on social media is from a 2015 Hollywood flick by the name of ‘Youth’ where the role of Maradona was played by an actor named Rolly Serrano.

While it’s fair to say that the two look quite alike, the video is from the movie and not from Maradona’s real life.
