Diego Maradona's girlfriend has been criticised for wearing tiger fur to the draw for the 2018 World Cup.

Rocio Olivia turned heads as she arrived at the Kremlin on Friday with her choice of outfit alongside the former Argentina striker, who was dressed in an all-black suit and yellow bow tie.

She provoked anger on social media with the knee-length garment.

One angry commentator wrote on Twitter afterwards: 'How disgusting! Rocio Olivia with a fur coat on. She hasn't got two brain cells to rub together.'

Argentinian Flor Vincenti added: 'Didn't anyone advise Rocio Oliva on her look? Please!!!'

Another outraged anti-fur protestor added: 'Rocio Olivia gets her advice from the devil.'

Others likened her look to that of mean Walt Disney character Cruella de Vil and one animal protection group went even further, saying: 'However blonde she goes with the hair dye, her soul remains blacker than coal. Rocio Olivia with a a dead animal in danger of extinction on her back.'

Rocio, who has had a turbulent on-off four-year relationship with her football legend lover since he dumped ex Veronica Ojeda, appeared to brush off the criticism with an Instagram post today.

The 26-year-old posted a picture of her on her privatised account in the fur coat with her 57-year-old partner, alongside a message which read: 'Gala photo. For friends….for the rest???? Well, ask me.'

Maradona and his girlfriend have been involved in a serious of headline-making incidents over the last four and a half years.

In May 2013 he allegedly grabbed her by the neck during a row on a plane.

Their relationship then hit rock-bottom when Maradona accused Rocio of stealing hundreds of pounds of jewellery and watches from his Dubai mansion.

She was detained on an international arrest warrant after flying back to Argentina from the World Cup in Brazil - but he subsequently withdraw his complaint after they patched things up.

In a separate incident Maradona apparently struck her twice with his right hand.??

He was labelled a 'psychopath and woman beater' by Rocio's aunt after the violent video was leaked to an Argentine TV station in October 2014.

The ex-footballer claimed afterwards he had only knocked the phone out of her hand and would never hit a woman.

Their relationship was again put under the spotlight in February 2015 after police were called to a hotel in Madrid where they were staying following reports of a violent row.

Maradona denied assaulting Rocio and no further action was taken.
