Fashion House Dolce & Gabbana has been ordered to pay Diego Maradona £59,000 in damages following a long-running court dispute after a model wore a Napoli shirt with his name and number on it during a fashion show.
Lawyers for Maradona said the retired footballer had not been contacted ahead of the show, which took place in Naples in 2016, or ask if he consented to his name being used.
Dolce & Gabbana, which had insisted it was paying tribute to the star who twice won the Italian League with Napoli, was also ordered to pay his legal fees. The total bill is expected to reach around £70,000.
