From professional footballer to drug smuggler - and back again

Help

24-year-old Maxim Molokoedov used to play football for Dinamo St Petersburg FC in the Russian Second Division.

Two years ago he was sentenced to three years in prison in the Chilean capital Santiago for trafficking cocaine from Ecuador.

But, having been spotted playing for his prison team, he is now being allowed out every day to train and play with the local football team Santiago Morning.
