Ex-Spurs star Hodge auctioning 1986 World Cup Argentina Maradona shirt

Former Tottenham and Nottingham Forest star Steve Hodge is auctioning his 1986 Argentina World Cup shirt.

Hodge is putting up for sale the famous jersey that Diego Maradona wore in the Argentina-England match in the 1986 World Cup in Mexico.

He and Maradona exchanged shirts in the locker room of the Azteca stadium after Argentina's famous win.

Sotheby's auction agency will be in charge of negotiating the No10 Blue shirt with the Le Coq Sportif starting next April 20 and ending on May 4.

Hodge recalled: "I thought I'm not going to be here again. And I'm going to try to get a jersey... I shook hands with Maradona. He was being harassed by his teammates. So I thought: 'It doesn't make sense, just leave it. After an interview I had I went down to the locker room and found Maradona. I looked him in the eye, pulled my shirt as if to say, 'Is there any possibility of exchange?'.

"He approached me and said yes. And there we exchanged them."
