Argentina's president wants to clone Messi, Maradona
Argentina' President Cristina Kirchner had high hopes for her country's national squad at the World Cup finals in South Africa, suggesting to "clone" them, DPA reported.
When visiting a clone lab in the city of Marcos Paz on Thursday, Kirchner joked that it would be a good idea to clone striker Lionel Messi or coach Diego Maradona, local newspapers reported.
"A Messi, a (Gonzalo) Higuain, a (Carlos) Tevez, Maradona, a (Juan Sebastian) Veron, everyone," Kirchner said.
Scientists work at the lab to clone sheep, goats and pigs.
