There was a footballing deity at the show in Buenos Aires last night and word reaches us that he legged it after the show with the singers cowboy hat.

The presence of Diego Maradonna, best known to football followers for his 'hand of God' goal which put England out of the 1986 World Cup in Mexico, created much excitement amongst the football-loving members of band and crew.

Director of Sound Joe O'Herlihy has had any singer or actor you care to mention at his mix position down the years, but rarely has he been as excited as having a C20th footballing great in the house.

Maradonna, now a well-known chat-show host in Argentina, was spotted hanging out with the band after the show and engaging in an exchange of headwear with Bono. Sources suggest that the footballer left the house in the singers hat.
