Diego Maradona's personal doctor has been accused of forging the legend's signature just to have access to copies of his medical records.
The authorities confirmed that Leopoldo Luque was nabbed by handwriting experts invited to examine documents seized in a raid on his home and office.
According to SunSport, the prosecutor’s office in Argentina was able to prove that the doctor fabricated the 60-year-old's signature in a request for pre-op records from a clinic in September.
The 1986 FIFA World Cup winner died at his home exactly three months ago today following a heart attack after brain surgery.

But the 39-year-old medical practitioner has denied the accusations levied against him, saying the former Napoli and Barcelona superstar was not properly cared for.
