And his body art has grown. Maradona is covered in tattoos of the things that mean most to him. Here's what he says about them:
On daughters Gianinna and Dalma: "I do everything for them. They know my virtues and defects. Their smiles are more important than making 30m Argentines smile."
On Che Guevara: "I carry him on my arm and in my heart. I learned his story, I learned to love him. I think I know the truth about him."
On Fidel Castro: "Meeting him was like touching the sky with my hands. What he has done for me is indescribable. Along with God, he is the reason I am alive."
What are these?
