Three workers hired to help with the funeral and burial of Diego Maradona have been condemned for taking photos next to his open coffin.
A funeral parlour took on the three to help prepare the coffin of the football icon, who died on Wednesday aged 60.
In two pictures, the men can be seen posing next to the open casket at the parlour, smiling with their thumbs up.
The photos surfaced online as Maradona’s body lay in repose at the presidential palace, provoking outrage.
Maradona’s agent and lawyer, Matías Morla, vowed to take legal action against the “scoundrel” responsible for the photos.
“For the memory of my friend, I won’t rest until he pays for such an atrocity,” Mr Morla wrote on Twitter.
