Maradona not well
ARGENTINE soccer great Diego Maradona has been released from hospital after being admitted earlier yesterday with internal bleeding in the stomach, his daughter Dalma said.
“For those who were really worried about my dad I can tell you that he is well,” Dalma tweeted.
Maradona, 58, was having a routine medical in his homeland of Argentina before returning to Mexico, where he is coach of second division side Dorados de Sinaloa, when doctors discovered the problem.
But a source close to the family says the problem was not serious and that the former midfielder, who famously led his country to the 1986 World Cup title, was not in danger.
Another source said Maradona may have to undergo more tests.
Maradona has suffered frequent periods in hospital over the years, often due to his extravagant lifestyle.
In recent months he has walked with crutches due to problems with his knees.
The unexpected news of his admittance to hospital came just hours after Maradona’s lawyer confirmed he would coach in Mexico for a second consecutive season.
