Hodge and Maradona exchanged the summit after Argentina beat England 2-1 in the quarter-finals of the 1986 World Cup.

Maradona scored both goals – one with his hand and the other with his foot.

But the anonymous buyer may be regretting the amazing winning bid after discovering more of the history behind the top.

Robbie Knox, who was part of the Soccer AM production team from 2000-2007 . revealed Twitter That Hodge once brought the top with him during an appearance on the show.

Although Hodge didn’t seem to care much about it, she just put it in a plastic bag.

His former colleague, AM football producer, Rocket (real name James Long), responded to Knox’s tweet with a photo of himself. He wears the T-shirt.

The sale comes after the Maradona family claimed the Three Lions midfielder was wearing the shirt he used in the first half, not the Hand of God shirt.

But Sotherbys said they have verified with no doubt that Hodge has the original jersey.

An Argentine delegation arrived in London on Tuesday to try to seize it for the Maradona Museum in Buenos Aires in a last-ditch effort to prevent the jersey from being kept in the UK.

The last winning bid of £7.142m came in the last minute of the sale and was submitted by an anonymous bidder.
