Maradona - La mano de Dios, internationally released as Maradona, the Hand of God, is a 2007 Italian-Argentine biographical film directed by Marco Risi. The life of the former football player Diego Armando Maradona is recreated in this film, from his childhood up to his first heart attack and his firm decision of recovering himself, passing through his stage of largest football glory when he was awarded with ten titles. This helped him to be chosen, in 2000, as the best athlete in the century, in a vote promoted by the FIFA.
