NEW MARADONA MURAL IN NAPLES

Diego Maradona fans have another reason to make a pilgrimage to Naples: a new mural of the Argentine legend has gone up to mark 30 years since he led local club Napoli to its first Italian title. Painted by artist Jorit Agoch, the giant, head-and-shoulders depiction of a middle-aged Maradona with grey-flecked hair and beard adorns the side of a building in San Giovanni Teduccio, a tough neighbourhood known locally as "The Bronx". Maradona was already the subject of a famous mural in the city's Spanish Quarter, which portrays him dribbling with ball at his feet in a manner reminiscent of when he was in his prime. That one was restored last year and there are discussions underway about making Maradona an honorary citizen of Naples to mark the May anniversary of the clinching of the 1987 title - a groundbreaking triumph that was repeated, again under Maradona's leadership, in 1990.
