There's Asif Kapadia's superb Diego Maradona documentary, a brand new game show hosted by Michael McIntyre, Ardal O'Hanlon talks to Deirdre O'Kane, and the history of the motor car . . .

Pick of the Day

Diego Maradona, 9.30pm, Channel 4

You don’t have to be a football fan to enjoy this HBO cracker, though it obviously helps to really appreciate a truly remarkable story.

Director Asif Kapadia’s CV includes Senna and Amy, and this documentary from 2019 is just as impressive.

It profiles the outrageously gifted Diego Maradona, who died on Wednesday, constructed from over 500 hours of never-before-seen footage from the Argentinean footballer's personal archive.

The focus is on Maradona’s tumultuous time at Napoli, the southern Italian club he transformed after he arrived from Barcelona in 1986. Some of the footage is jaw-dropping.

Anyone who’s been to Naples in recent decades can’t have failed to notice that he’s still treated like a god by the people there. Here’s the how and why.

C'è solo un Diego!
