Leopoldo Luque, the personal physician of legendary Argentine striker Diego Maradona, said he had a successful operation. Earlier it was reported that the specialist would have to undergo emergency surgery due to a cerebral hemorrhage.
“After one and a half hours of surgery, we solved Diego’s problem. Everything went well. He will now remain under surveillance. The operation was an important step, but the edema has already passed, so Maradona will be able to recover, ” the doctor said on the website of journalist Gianluca di Marzio.
Over the past years, Maradona has had many health problems. In particular, at the match Argentina – Nigeria of the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, he fainted.
