Mortuary attendant fired for taking selfie with Diego Maradona’s body


Funeral worker causes outrage after posing with Diego Maradona’s body in coffin

A funeral parlour worker has been sacked after posing for a sickening picture next to the open coffin of Diego Maradona.

The shocking image, which Mirror Sport has decided not to publish, shows the man giving the thumbs up next to the 60-year-old’s body.

The man is understood to have been tasked with preparing Maradona’s body for the wake. The owner of Sepelios Pinier funeral parlour confirmed to local media that the employee has been sacked.

The picture, which has been shared on social media, garnered a very angry response.

One Twitter user wrote: “He should be stripped of his Argentinian citizenship. You don’t do something like this. Complete lack of respect.”
