Maradona gets driver’s license, stars in driving school ad

As Maradona settles into life in Dubai (and by "settles" I of course mean "kicks locals who annoy him"), he recently decided to get a U.A.E. driver's license so he can cruise around in cars provided by Al Wasl sponsor Audi. And while he was at the Belhasa Driving Center getting his license, he apparently said "Hey, why not?" to taking part in a low-budget newspaper ad with a forced football tie-in.

Though it's hard to tell from this ad if he got his license or won a sweepstakes, at least there were no mishaps involving buses like the last time Maradona's driving made the news.
