Diego Maradona is a sensitive man. On Monday he caught some feelings at the FIFA The Best awards ceremony after giving the FIFA Best Men's Player award to Cristiano Ronaldo and not fellow Argentinian Lionel Messi.
"To give the Best [award] to Ronaldo and not be able to give it to Messi hurt my soul," Maradona said to TyC Sports.
Luckily for Maradona, he and Messi did get to share a tender moment at the awards gala.

Messi will just have to content himself with having already won the FIFA Men's Player of the Year five times, and Maradona will have to content himself with being a fabulously wealthy celebrity and one of the best footballers of all time.
