"It's 3am and we're just getting back to Moscow without any problems. No alcohol or important story."
He later wrote an Instagram message to clarify the situation that read: "I want to tell everyone that I am fine, that I am not, neither was I interned.
"In the halftime of the game against Nigeria, my neck hurt a lot and I suffered a decompensation.
"I was checked by a doctor and he recommended me to go home before the second half, but I wanted to stay because we were risking it all. How could I leave? I send a kiss to everyone, thanks for the support!'"
So that clears it up - sort of.
A middle-aged football legend, stuffed full of white wine, having the time of his life as his team finally showed up at the World Cup.
To be honest, he could have sacrificed a goat and most people in Argentina would still think he was God.
