This is news that should reassure fans of the absolute idol Diego Maradona. The Argentine football legend was allowed to leave the hospital in Olivos, on the northern outskirts of Buenos Aires, where he was admitted eight days ago for head surgery, his personal doctor said. “Maradona is allowed out“said the Dr Leopoldo Luque when leaving the hospital. Shortly before, he had posted on his Instagram account a photo showing him hugging his famous patient whose head was covered with a bandage.
Diego Maradona had been transferred to Olivos after a first hospitalization in La Plata, 60 km south of the capital. A CT scan then revealed the hematoma on the head requiring surgery. Dr. Leopoldo Luque also repeated that the extraction of a subdural hematoma, located in the head, was a “routine operation“.
Before his hospitalization, Maradona had been confined since March due to the pandemic and his fragile health. The Argentinian still occupies the role of coach of the club of Gimnasia y Esgrima La Plata.
