Maradona makes opening after all

Diego Maradona showed up for the opening ceremony last night after all. It had been reported that organisers balked at his demands that be paid US$1.5 million to take part. But the Argentine legend took to the field with presidents Hugo Chávez of Venezuela and Evo Morales of Bolivia ahead of their two countries 2-2 draw last night in San Cristóbal. Maradona is a friend of Hugo and Evo and has appeared on stage at political rallies held by them before so it is not clear whether he was paid last night or was just hanging out with his mates.
