Fidel Castro, the retired leader of the Cuban Revolution, met with Argentine football great Diego Maradona on Saturday, the official media said Monday.
"The exchange between the two old friends was fruitful," the official Cuban Granma daily reported, describing the gathering as "brotherly" and "cheerful."
The newspaper also published photos taken by one of Castro's sons.
Castro, 86, turned over Cuba's presidency to his brother Raul in July 2006 after falling ill, and his public appearances since then have been rare.
