Footballing legend Diego Maradona has claimed he was once abducted by a UFO and went missing for three days.

The 59-year-old retired midfielder had also said he lost his virginity aged 13 'in a basement with an older lady' who was reading a newspaper at the time.

He recently made the comments in an interview with Argentine sports channel TyC Sports.

Interviewers had asked Maradona if he believed in UFOs, with the ex-Napoli star saying: 'Why make things up? Once, after a few too many drinks, I was missing from home for three days.

'I got home and said that UFOs had taken me. I said "They took me, I can’t tell you about it".'

In a rather revealing interview, he was also asked when he lost his virginity.

'At 13 years old, in a basement with an older lady. I was on top and she was reading a newspaper,' said the star, according to the Sun. 

Maradona retired his playing career in 1997, and has moved into management, currently coaching Gimnasia de La Plata in his native Argentina.

But during his time on the pitch he also revealed that he had played 'several times' without having slept the night before.

He also added that his ideal guests for a dinner party were Fidel Castro, Hugo Chavez, Lula (a former Brazilian President), Nestor Kirchner (former Argentine President), Alberto Fernandez (former Argentine President), and Cristina Kirchner (former Argentine President).
