Former Argentine soccer star Diego Maradona was arrested by Brazilian police at Rio de Janeiro airport today (22DEC05) following a disturbance.

Investigating officers have confirmed they intend to carry out an alcohol test on the 1986 World Cup-winner, who is reported to have "lost his cool" after missing his flight home to Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Maradona, who has fought drug and weight problems in recent years, was in Rio yesterday (21DEC05) to play in a charity match arranged by former Brazil player Zico.

But he angered fans and organisers when he announced he would not be an active participant in the game shortly before kick-off. Instead, he watched the game from the sidelines surrounded by minders.
