Although very much in love, his dedication to duty is unshakeable. Can he find a way to live happily-ever-after with Mabel?

Diego Maradona is a fascinating documentary that looks at the career of celebrated football player Diego Armando Maradona. Having never won a major tournament, ailing football giant SSC Napoli had criminally underachieved. Their fanatical support was unequalled in both passion and size. None was more feared. But how they ached for success. On 5th July 1984, Diego Maradona arrived in Naples for a world-record fee and for seven years all hell broke loose. The world's most celebrated football genius and the most dysfunctional city in Europe were a perfect match for each other.
