Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Nypost.com: “Funeral worker apologizes for selfie with Diego Maradona’s body”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

After receiving death threats, the funeral worker who posed for a selfie by the open coffin of Argentinian soccer legend Diego Maradona has begged for forgiveness, the BBC reported Saturday.

Claudio Fernández, who was fired over the incident, said the decision to take the photo was impulsive and he regrets it. Fernandez was snapped with his son, who made a thumbs-up signal, and another man.

Several photos showed up online as Maradona’s body lay in state at the presidential palace, causing an uproar. In one photo one of the men appears to be touching the forehead of the late World Cup winner.

Maradona’s lawyer, Matías Morla, said he would sue “the scoundrel” responsible for the photos.

“My son, like every kid, raised his thumb and they took the photo,” he said. “I know that many people have been offended, they have taken it badly.”
