Girlfriend Luciana caught the sun and Julian was left convinced he saw the face of football star Diego Maradona's face on her now tanned leg.

A 17-year-old is convinced he has seen the face of the late football legend Diego Maradona in his girlfriend's suntan.

Julian Gonzalez and his partner Luciana had gone to the beach in Santa Teresita, south of Buenos Aires, Argentina. 

He was left baffled when he saw the Argentinian football star's face appear on Luciana's leg after she had caught the sun. 

'We were eating and I looked at her leg,' Julian said. 'That's when I realised the mark that she had.

'She told me that she saw it too, but that she did not care. 

'As a fan, I realised it quickly.'  

Julian quickly took a picture of the suntan and posted it on Instagram. 

He said: 'My girlfriend got sunburned and they are going to call me crazy. But I see Diego. Is it Diego or not?' 

He put the picture out to a vote on the social media app and more than 90 per cent of his followers agreed with him. 

Julian revealed he was a huge fan of Maradona, who died on November 25 from heart failure at the age of 60. 

'I was a Maradonian all my life, thanks to what my father told me about him,' Julian said. 

'It represents everything I feel for football, the love for the jersey and everything it transmitted on and off the pitch.'
