Diego Maradona has been accused of beating his partner Rocio Oliva in a row over her mobile phone.
His girlfriend secretly filmed the episode which shows the former Argentina legend shouting at her for using her mobile and then apparently hitting out at her twice.
Maradona has denied attacking 23-year-old Rocio Oliva but has admitted to knocking the mobile out of her hand.
“I sent the phone flying but I swear by my children that I never raised my hand to a woman,” he said. “The story starts and finishes there.”
The video was shown by Argentine TV program “Nosotros al Mediodía” and Oliva can be heard pleading with Maradona to “stop hitting me”.
Maradona starting dating Oliva in 2013 and got engaged to the former women’s footballer earlier this year.
