Soccer star Maradona sues Chinese company that allegedly wronged him.

Argentinian soccer star Diego Maradona (who knows a thing or two about foul play) is unhappy with a Chinese company that he says stole his likeness. From China Daily:

The9 Limited, an online game operator and developer in China, launched a new online game named “Winning Goal” last year and used the image of Maradona in the game.

According to Zhu Jun, board chairman of The9 Limited, Maradona had agreed to sign the contract of celebrity endorsement for the football-themed game.
