Diego Maradona's infamous 'hand of God' goal

Cannot play media. Sorry, this media is not available in your territory.

Watch highlights of the 1986 World Cup quarter-final between England and Argentina.

A short and affectionate fictional drama about Bobby Robson, set in the aftermath of Maradona's infamous 'Hand of God' goal at the 1986 World Cup, will be broadcast on BBC Radio 5 live on Tuesday (2130 BST) and Sunday (1800 BST).

Veteran British actor Tim Healy stars as former England manager Robson - with Healy's wife, Denise Welch, as Elsie Robson - in 'Don't Cry For Me, Maradona', which has been written by Aelish Michael in consultation with the Robson family.

With flashbacks to the match itself, which took place 25 years ago this month, the play examines how one of the real gentlemen of football coped with the agonies and ecstacies of the beautiful game.

Match highlights above available to UK audience only.
