In the update, Maradona even suggested that he would be looking into legal action against Konami. The in-game version of Maradona represents him in his prime, with a full head of hair like he had in the early 1980s. Konami say they had permission, however.

Maradona alleges that he never gave permission to the video game publisher to use his likeness in the game.

The Swiss saved his second match point with an unplayable first serve and set up his own match point with an ace down the middle. It had looked as if he would have little trouble with Berdych, who he has not lost to since 2013, after a routine first set.

While EA Sports are yet to officially comment on whether Maradona would be appearing on the game, professional Federation Internationale de Football Association player Kurt0411Fifa has provided evidence in the form of code which points toward the Argentine being involved. The former football player has accused the company for using his image without the necessary rights in the title of PES 2017.
"I hope this isn't another scam", he wrote.
The former Argentina global, considered by many to be the greatest footballer of all-time, is unhappy at the use of his likeness in the latest instalment of the series PES 2017.
