The Daily Mail revealed today that one of the most famous pictures in football history is “fake”.
Maradona’s picture in the world cup 1982 featuring the man having the ball while six Belgian defenders were trying to take it away from him is quite “misleading”.
The truth is that it is the Belgian players were forming a free-kick wall that has just splintered.
The photographer amazingly gave the illusion that the legend Diego Maradona is about to dribble six defenders.
The photographer knew his shot will go viral, especially at a time where no Internet was available.
