Why Diego Maradona Has Been Wearing Two Watches At The World Cup
| Last updated
We've seen a whole lot of Diego Maradona being absolutely off his nut during the World Cup so far, but the Argentinian legend has majorly confused people by wearing two watches - one on either wrist.
The former Boca Juniors, Barcelona and Napoli man has a watch deal with Hublot, where he was a line of expensive watches that each feature his iconic No.10 shirt number on the clock.
'El Diego' obviously gets them for free and though normally people wear just the one on their left wrist, the 1986 World Cup winner decided that he'd pop two on, because why not? Yet the bold and interesting fashion call has puzzled plenty.

However, as per the Metro, there is a pretty straightforward explanation as to why Maradona often watches. It's simply so he has one per timezone - he has one with the time back in home in Argentina, and a second which tells him what time it is locally.
Being honest, the 57-year old wouldn't have been able to have told the time even if he had six watches yesterday because of the state he was in watching Argentina's huge 2-1 win over Nigeria in the stands.
After going all 'Stone Cold' Steve Austin by flipping the bird when Marcos Rojo bagged the winner, worrying footage showed Maradona being carried back into his box and then attended to by paramedics.

There were reports that he was taken to hospital but an update on his official Facebook page denied those claims.
