Marco Materazzi has revealed he has made up with Zinedine Zidane following their infamous World Cup bust-up.
The pair have had a long-running feud since the 2006 World Cup final when Zidane was sent-off for headbutting Materazzi in the chest.
However, ahead of Real Madrid's Champions League clash with AC Milan last month the pair came face-to-face with each other by chance in a Milan hotel.
Zidane, who is now working as an adviser for Real, denied the pair had met, but now Materazzi claims the two men came across each other and shook hands to end their feud.
"I was leaving the hotel when someone came and stopped me and said there was a problem," Materazzi told Mediaset.
"They said that Zidane was parking right next to my car. I replied that I didn't see a problem.
"I went out and found myself in front of Zidane so I took the opportunity to say some things to him, things that he and I know and that will stay between us.
"Let's say that it was I who spoke most and at the end when he extended his hand to me I clasped it and didn't let go until he looked me properly in the eye.
"That's what I wanted and that's how it went."
Materazzi also revealed he had a bust-up with former Inter Milan team-mate Mario Balotelli.
Balotelli, who is now at Manchester City, was involved in a number of controversial incidents during his time at Inter and Materazzi has confirmed he had a fight with the striker.
"He received a slap and a boot in the face," Materazzi said of Balotelli.
"But when he had an operation and he was in hospital, I was there at midnight keeping him company and getting him snacks from the machine."
