Diego Maradona Responds To Claims He Was Hospitalised

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jun 27, 2018 09:28 AM @KurtLaduma

The legendary Diego Maradona was rumoured to be hospitalised after Argentina’s thrilling FIFA 2018 FIFA World Cup Group D win over Nigeria, but he has now responded to those rumours.

Click through the mini-gallery to see Maradona’s behaviour during Argentina’s game.

Pictures of the great Maradona did the rounds across all social media platforms on Tuesday night, as well as videos of the 57-year-old appearing worse for wear.

Following Argentina’s dramatic win that saw them qualify for the round of 16, it was rumoured that the 1986 World Cup winner was taken to hospital amid concerns over his health. 

Maradona, though, has shut down those reports in a Facebook post, insisting that medical professionals attended to him because he hurt his neck.

"I want to tell everyone that I am fine, that I am not, nor was I, hospitalised," he wrote on his official Facebook page, according to Sportskeeda.

"At half-time of the game against Nigeria, my neck hurt a lot and I suffered a decompensation.

"I was checked by a doctor and he recommended that I leave before the second half, but I wanted to stay because we were playing for everything. How could I leave?

"I send a kiss to everyone. Thanks for the support."

Maradona Sends Messi A Message

Lionel Messi and his teammates will go up against France in the next round of the tournament, and could face the winner of Uruguay against Portugal, if they would make it to the next round.

How far do you think Argentina can go in Russia? Let us know in the comments section below.
