Argentina squad allowed to enjoy sex during the World Cup

Argentina team doctor prescribes it, but only on non-match days
While England boss Fabio Capello is keeping the WAGS away from his players in South Africa for the World Cup, Argentina coach Diego Maradona and his staff are not ruling with quite such an iron fist.

The Argentina World Cup squad, which includes the likes of Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez, have received the green light to have sex with regular partners during the World Cup as long as it is on non-match days.

Argentine team doctor Donato Villami, speaking on Argentina radio station Radio Del Plata, said: "The players will be able to have sex during the World Cup in South Africa, but with regular partners and without champagne or other drinks.

"Sex is part of everybody's social life and it's not a problem in itself. Problems arise with the excesses: all the extras, a non-regular partner or in hours reserved for rest."

Argentina, one of the favourites for the tournament, kick off against Nigeria in Group B on June 12, and then face Greece and South Korea.

No trip to South Africa is complete without a visit to its most beautiful and sunniest city. Durban offers much more than sandy beaches, safaris, casinos and the World Cup, for information on what to do and see, please click here.
