The man infamously known for his "Hand of God" goal has been caught using his hands again in an unsportsmanlike manner.

Diego Maradona slapped a reporter's face after attending an event with his family this weekend, allegedly for winking at his ex-wife.

The Argentine soccer great also called the journalist an "idiot" during the confrontation outside a theatre in Buenos Aires. 

Video images showed Maradona leaving his car and slapping the journalist him with his right hand (scrub ahead to the 1:15 mark). The journalist did not immediately react.

Fans and reporters had surrounded Maradona's car to talk to one of the greatest players in soccer history. He answered a few questions and was about to leave when he became upset.

Maradona's son and his ex-wife were inside the car.
