Diego Maradona gives engagement ring to 28-year-old girlfriend Rocio Oliva as couple get set for marriage

Maradona first proposed to Oliva four years ago but the ring was presented as part of his birthday celebrates in Buenos Aires

Diego Maradona has given an engagement ring to his girlfriend Rocio Oliva on her 28th birthday and the couple are set to get married four years after he initially proposed to her.
The Argentinian icon reportedly presented the ring at the party that was held in the Bella Vista area of the Argentinian capital, Buenos Aires.
Maradona, 57, reportedly presented Oliva with a diamond ring and asked her to marry him in front of the 45 guests.
The 28-year-old said yes and the pair reportedly celebrated with bottles of Dom Perignon champagne.
Oliva's mother Monica and Maradona's daughter Jana burst into tears of joy after the ring was presented, according to reports.
Oliva told guests: "I am happy because this is my last birthday as a single woman and I can share it with all of you!
"My wishes for today and forever are to be happy with Diego, for my mother and grandmother Chiche to live forever and everyone I love to stay healthy."
The birthday party reportedly featured a performance from Argentinian singer El Polaco.
He initially asked Oliva to marry him in Rome in February 2014 but has only just presented her with a ring and the couple will now set a date for the wedding.
Oliva is an ex-professional footballer who played for several clubs in the couple's native Argentina.
