Chaos broke out at Diego Maradona's wake after his coffin was moved.
Trouble began to break out at 2pm in Argentina when police officers stepped in on a crowd of people queueing up to enter Casa Rosada in Buenos Aires.
Fans started climbing the Argentine government house for a glimpse of the famous number 10's coffin,
The legendary footballer's family had originally demanded that the ceremony ended at 4.30pm which made access impossible for his hundreds of thousands of grieving fans to attend.
People gathered in the centre of the Argentine capital to pay tribute and say their final farewell to Maradona.
President Alberto Fernández spoke to Diego's daughters to push the wake back.
But the news did little to calm the mass of fans already gathered at the entrance to the Hall of the Latin American Patriots - inside the government house.
Security forces stationed at the building used tear gas on those people who tried to breach the perimeter laid out.
Tears could be seen in the eyes of those who got close enough to hug the coffin.
Officials changed the direction of the coffin procession so it was further away from the packed fences.
Fans who got into Patio de las Palmeras in a mad frenzy became soaked by the surrounding.
Friction erupted between the national and Buenos Aires governments as a result of the wake's organisation and management.
The Executive Branch blamed the City Police for clamping down on the fans crowded on the streets.
Luis Morales, undersecretary of National Security, said: “In no way would we have given indications to clear or repress; we have just contacted the city authorities to request that there be no more disbanders ”.
From the surroundings of the Buenos Aires Minister of Security, Diego Santilli, they gave their version of the events: “The national government armed a unified command of federal forces with our support and at 2:00 p.m. they gave the order that no more people enter, which generated the incidents ”.
Sources close to the security agencies affirmed that there were at least three detainees in the vicinity of Avenida de Mayo and 9 de Julio following the wake.
