Pope Francis is even bigger than me, jokes Maradona

(euronews) Controversial football star Diego Maradona meets Pope Francis – his fellow Argentinian – at the Vatican.

Maradona, who led Argentina to World Cup victory in 1986 and played for Italian side Napoli, gave him a light blue-and-white jersey with his Argentine national team number – 10 – and the name Francisco on it.

“Pope Francis is even bigger than Maradona,” the former Argentina captain and coach told reporters, adding that Francis had inspired him to return to religion after many years.
