Diego Maradona is a showman, even when he doesn’t want to be one. The Argentinian legend's touchline antics during Gimnasia's game against Central Cordoba were absolutely hilarious.

Right now he’s in charge of Gimnasia, who have battled relegation in Argentina's Primera División all season. It looks like all this pressure is getting to the 59-year-old, who displayed a lot of emotions during Sunday’s night game.

Diego took a tumble after his side missed a glorious chance to take the lead.

If that wasn’t enough, he was spotted shaking while praying on the touchline in a tense affair at the Juan Carmelo Zerillo Stadium.

In the end, Gimnasia won the game, coming from behind in the second half to secure a 2-1 victory.

With the result, ‘El Lobo’ moves to 21st in the table after being bottom when Maradona took over at the beginning of September.

In his post-match interview, the 1986 World Cup winner was tearful, bizarrely closing the night, exactly like it started.
