Maradona Trolls England Fans With Instagram Post

Diego Maradona has trolled England fans with a photo of himself wearing a Colombia shirt on his Instagram page.

The 57-year-old, who has made a bit of a fucking spectacle of himself during the World Cup, shared the photo just ahead of England's match against Colombia with the caption: 'Vamos con toda Colombia', which translates as 'we are all Colombia'. Cheeky.

Maradona's own side, Argentina, were kicked out the competition after losing 4-3 to France on Saturday.

The football legend, who made 91 appearances for his country before managing them for a couple of years, flew out to Russia to show his support for his team.

But, he grabbed more headlines than his team with his off-pitch antics, which included turning himself into a meme by posing like this:

He's also been caught sticking his middle fingers up to the cameras and drinking so much white wine he had to be carried from his seat and looked over by a doctor.

Oh, and who could forget this low-key little banner he dragged along with him?

However, all of Maradona's acting up - and possibly the reason why he's rocking a Colombia shirt today - could be a bit of a show, because the former-footballer is currently being filmed for an upcoming film about his life.

The biopic is being put together by London-born director Asif Kapadia, who also worked on the feature-length documentary about Amy Winehouse and the epic film Senna.

And Maradona is certainly providing them with plenty of, erm... interesting footage.

The film is reported to be partly funded by Channel 4 and Film Four - maybe having camera crew in tow explains some of Maradona's wild behaviour in Russia.

The film's expected to be released late next year, and this is giving it plenty of publicity - I mean, look, here's me writing about it and you reading about it, so job done.
