According to an El Mundo report, Oliva shot and published a video that shows the former footballing legend, with a drink in his hand, approaching her violently and hitting her twice as she screamed in protest.

This is the latest 'incident' to occur in their rocky-relationship. In June 2013, Oliva had alleged that she was a victim of domestic violence. (Maradona Set me up: Oliva)

Maradona's 'misadventures' after a glittering on-field career are well documented. Having lifted the football World Cup as Argentina skipper in 1986 and being considered one of the best to have played the sport, Maradona has suffered from several ills including cocaine addiction. He was even banned during the 1994 World Cup for failing a drug test. Maradona had also admitted that his drug addiction had stopped him from fulfilling his full potential.
