Diego Maradona Hospitalised After Stomach Bleeding


Former football star Maradona was admitted to hospital on Friday after being diagnosed internal stomach bleeding, although the issue is reportedly minor and not a threat to his health.

The former World Cup winner had returned to Buenos Ares for a routine check-up at the Clinica Olivos, when doctors detected the issue.

Sources from Maradona’s family, however, later revealed to Reuters that the problem “was nothing serious” and that the Dorados coach was “out of danger”.

Further tests were carried out on Maradona, who was later released from hospital.

This is not the first time Maradona’s health has been a cause for concern. Last summer he required medical after Argentina’s 2-1 victory against Nigeria in the World Cup after suffering a drop in blood pressure.

He has also been using walking stick for most times this season due to arthritis in both knees.
