Buenos Aires: Diego Maradona was ad­mit­ted to a clinic in Buenos Aires yes­ter­day to un­dergo a sched­uled pro­ce­dure due to stom­ach bleed­ing, ac­cord­ing to mul­ti­ple re­ports. Maradona, 58, was di­ag­nosed with a health prob­lem in early Jan­uary dur­ing rou­tine ex­ams per­formed at the same hos­pi­tal in the town of Olivos. The surgery is ex­pected to last one hour. He was pre­par­ing to travel to Mex­ico to take over the tech­ni­cal man­age­ment of the Do­ra­dos de Si­naloa foot­ball club.

“It is bleed­ing due to a her­nia. It is not com­pli­cated at all,” a source told Reuters on Sat­ur­day, adding: “With this, he hopes to solve some of the in­con­ve­niences that he usu­ally has.”
