The relationship between Valentino rossi Y Diego Armando Maradona it was very particular. ‘Vale’ is a great fan of the figure of the Argentine star and before the news of his death, he was very hurt on social networks. In addition, Diego was a great fan of motors, as he had an extensive collection of cars and motorcycles.
In the last hours, the official account of Valentino Rossi shared some images in which ‘Il Dottore’ and Maradona are seen in the Paddock of MotoGP. On that occasion, the 2008 Misano Grand Prix of the highest category of motorcycling took place. And the winner of the race was nothing more, and nothing less than Valentino Rossi.
In the video you can see ‘Vale’ waiting for the start time, next to his Yamaha. The Italian pilot got a smile, seeing that ‘Pelusa’ was slowly approaching. Automatically, Valentino turned his motorcycle around and gave him a hug that seemed eternal. However, the most emotional moment occurred after the race was over.
In the Yamaha box it was all joy and celebration for Valentino’s victory. However, everything changed when Maradona entered the box. All jumping, screaming and excited to the rhythm of the historic song of the Napoli: «I’ve seen Maradona». At that moment, Valentino made a great gesture of reverence, kissing her feet, while Diego kissed her hands returning the gesture.
In 2012, Valentino took victory in the Grand Prix of the Argentine Republic. In celebration, the MotoGP idol put the number 10 on his back, with the name of Maradona, and took the podium. That is why Rossi could not stop greeting Diego in his farewell: “Ciao Diego, Magician of the ball,” he said in his social media publication this Wednesday.
