Maradona was surrounded by journalists on the way to his press conference in Buenos Aires and is reported to have accidentally driven over a cameraman's leg.

A witness said that Maradona's vehicle rolled over the man's leg and that the Argentina boss shouted: "What an asshole you are. How can you put your leg there where it can get run over, man?"

The man was treated by paramedics while Maradona continued to his press conference where he confirmed the identity of the 23 players that will represent the country in South Africa.
