Maradona released from Argentine hospital, plans return to Mexico
Buenos Aires, Jan 14 : Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona was released from the Clinica Olivos on Sunday, his representative said.
The 58-year-old Maradona underwent successful surgery on Saturday for minor stomach bleeding at the clinic outside Buenos Aires, Efe reported.
After a series of pre-surgical tests, the operation was completed in an hour for a "small intestinal eventration," the result of a gastric bypass that was carried out in Venezuela in 2015.
The former Argentine national team star had a similar procedure 10 years earlier in Colombia.
Maradona plans to rest for two days in Buenos Aires before returning to Mexico, where he coaches the Second-Division Sinaloa Dorados soccer club.
