Maradona Re­cov­er­ing in Hos­pi­tal After Surgery

Iran News - - SPORTS -

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - Ar­gentina’s World Cup win­ning cap­tain Diego Maradona was re­cov­er­ing in hos­pi­tal on Satur­day after suc­cess­fully un­der­go­ing a rou­tine op­er­a­tion for stom­ach bleed­ing, his lawyer said.

The 58-year old for­mer Boca Ju­niors and Napoli player dis­cov­ered the prob­lem in early Jan­uary dur­ing a check up at a hos­pi­tal in Olivos, on the out­skirts of Buenos Aires.

Satur­day’s op­er­a­tion, to stem bleed­ing caused by a her­nia, was not com­pli­cated but aimed to re­solve what one source told Reuters were “in­con­ve­niences” caused by the is­sue.

“Diego Maradona’s sur­gi­cal pro­ce­dure is over,” his lawyer Ma­tias Morla said on Twit­ter. “Thank God ev­ery­thing went per­fectly.”

Maradona has suf­fered fre­quent pe­ri­ods in hos­pi­tal over the years, of­ten due to the ex­trav­a­gant life­style that helped make him one of the most ad­mired play­ers of the 20th cen­tury.
