Argentina legend Diego Maradona has claimed he was abducted by a UFO and also revealed he lost his virginity at the age of 13 with an ‘older woman’.
The 59-year-old, now the manager of homeland club Gimnasia, made the comments in an interview with Argentine sports channel TyC Sports.
When asked if he believed in UFOs, Maradona said: “Why make things up? Once, after a few too many drinks, I was missing from home for three days.
“I got home and said that UFOs had taken me. I said ‘They took me, I can’t tell you about it’.”
Bizarrely, the former Napoli and Barcelona attacker was also asked what age he lost his virginity, to which he responded: “At 13 years old, in a basement with an older lady.
“I was on top and she was reading a newspaper.”

He continued to reveal that he played ‘several’ football matches in his career without having slept and also added that he’d call Carlos (Tevez), Lionel Messi and Gabriel Heinze if he had to invite three footballers on his yacht.
And referring to netting with his infamous ‘hand of God’ against England in the 1986 World Cup, Maradona described himself as ‘a regular guy who scored a goal against the English who were killing our kids in the Falklands War’.
There’s no arguing that Maradona is one of the most colourful personalities in sport, and just last month he reduced tennis legend Roger Federer to tears after he called him ‘the greatest’.
The Argentine sent a video message, which was aired on the big screen as Federer was on the court, calling the 20-time Grand Slam champion the best player of all time.

He said: “Hello master, machine, like I call you.
“You were, you are, and will always be the greatest. There is no other like you.
“I want you to know that if you have any kind of trouble in my country, you can call me and tell me what you need.”
