London, May 21 (ANI): Fans of legendary Argentinean footballer Diego Maradona can now get a view of his life in a new documentary by award winning Serbian director Emir Kusturica.

Kusturica, who has twice won the Palme dOr prize at Cannes, has made a 90-minute documentary about the footie ace that tells the story of Maradonas rise from humble beginnings, his descent into drugs and drink, and his rebirth.

The documentary had its world premiere at the film festival recently, reports Times Online.

Maradona, infamous for the hand of God incident in the 1986 World Cup, also took the time to say that his drug addiction was over.

What is good is that I survived to be able to talk about it. I can get up every morning and talk to my daughters. Ive abandoned all those bad habits. I have a different life. Above all, Im not living at 100 miles an hour, as I used to, he said. (ANI)
