Diego Maradona’s ‘Hand of God’ shirt sells for over £7 million at auction

The blue shirt worn by Diego Maradona when he scored two momentous goals to knock England out of the 1986 World Cup, including the so-called ‘Hand of God’ goal, has sold for a record-breaking sum at auction. The Argentinian, hailed as one of the greatest players of all time, described his opening goal in the quarter-final, where he punched the ball into the net, as “a little with the head of Maradona, and a little with the hand of God”. He then dribbled past a host of England players to score again past goalkeeper Peter Shilton. That effort was later voted the ‘goal of the century’.
