Diego Maradona mobbed by fans in Italy

Former footballer Diego Maradona has arrived back in Italy where he played in the late 1980s.

He was mobbed by press and fans on his arrival in Rome and then again in Naples.

Maradona is in the country 20 years after Italian police started chasing him for unpaid taxes.

He says he wants to put an end to allegations that he is a tax cheat.

Daniela Ritorto reports.
