Ar­gentina’s World Cup win­ning cap­tain Diego Maradona was re­leased from hos­pi­tal on Sun­day after suc­cess­fully un­der­go­ing a rou­tine op­er­a­tion for stom­ach bleed­ing. The 58-year old coach of Mex­i­can club Do­ra­dos de Si­naloa was di­ag­nosed ear­lier this month with in­ter­nal bleed­ing caused by a her­nia and went un­der the knife on Satur­day in a hos­pi­tal on the out­skirts of Buenos Aires. “Diego Maradona has just been re­leased from hos­pi­tal and is head­ing home to con­tinue with his re­cu­per­a­tion,” the player’s lawyer Ma­tias Morla said. Maradona has been no stranger to hos­pi­tals in re­cent years. He last fell ill at the 2018 World Cup in Rus­sia, where he fainted while watch­ing Ar­gentina play Nige­ria. In re­cent months he has been us­ing crutches due to prob­lems with his knees.
