Football legend Diego Maradona, who is coaching Argentine side Gimnasia, broke into a jiggle in the dressing room after overseeing his first win as the team’s manager. A video of Maradona’s quirky dance has since gone viral.
Gimnasia suffered three back-to-back defeats since Maradona took over as manager before defeating Godoy Cruz 4-2 to lift themselves from the bottom of the table. And that called for a Maradona-style celebration.

Maradona underwent surgery on his right knee back in July after he resigned as coach of Mexico’s second-division team Dorados de Sinaloa in the middle of June.
He was reportedly told by doctors he needed knee and shoulder surgeries to keep working as coach. The 1986 World Cup champion also suffers from severe arthritis in both his knees.
Maradona has been a subject of memes since his appearance at last year’s FIFA World Cup in Russia. While all the action on the field kept millions of fans around the world glued to their screens, it was the Argentinian legend who stole the show from the stands.
From dancing with a fan from the opposition team to showing the crowd an offensive gesture after Argentina’s goals, Maradona was the talk of the World Cup.
