A festival of football in Cannes

Where: Cannes, France.

When: 21 May, 2008.

Who: His family - oh, and Mike Tyson, of course. Maradona attended the Cannes film festival to watch a screening of the documentary 'Maradona by Kusturica', by Serbian director Emir Kusturica. Tyson, in town, went to meet his friend.

Maradona delighted the crowd by playing keepy-uppy on the red carpet - well what else was the left-footed legend going to do?

What he said: "What I'm trying to say in the film is I have my own opinion. And I have the right to have that opinion. And through me the Argentine people can express an opinion."
