Soccer legend Diego Maradona’s iconic ‘Hand Of God’ shirt has sold for a whopping $9.3 million

The shirt was worn by Maradona in the World Cup game against England in 1986, and it is now the most expensive jersey ever sold.

The record-breaking sale has smashed that of any sports memorabilia item, in an online auction.

The iconic blue jersey went to an anonymous buyer and was previously owned by Former England midfielder Steve Hodge.

Hodge was given the jersey in an exchange with Maradona after the renowned game.

Leading up to the auction, sports fans and collectors were eager to get their hands on the famous shirt.

Some say it’s arguably the most desired football shirt to ever reach auction, so the hefty price tag is worth its while.

“This historic shirt is a tangible reminder of an important moment not only in the history of sports, but in the history of the 20th century,”

“In the weeks since we announced the auction we have been inundated by sports fans and collectors alike, with a palpable excitement in the air for the duration of the public exhibition — and this unfiltered enthusiasm was echoed in the bidding.

“This is arguably the most coveted football shirt to ever come to auction, and so it is fitting that it now holds the auction record for any object of its kind.”
