Maradona undergoes surgery for stomach bleeding

Diego Maradone

The 58-year-old former national captain and manager discovered the problem at a routine hospital check-up this month.

Diego Maradona was admitted to a clinic in Buenos Aires on Saturday to undergo a scheduled procedure due to stomach bleeding.

"Diego Maradona has just been released from hospital and is heading home to continue with his recuperation", the player's lawyer Matias Morla said on Twitter.

Maradona has suffered frequent periods in hospital over the years, often due to the extravagant lifestyle that helped make him one of the most admired players of the 20th century.

Maradona's health has been cause for concern for some time and he fainted at the World Cup last summer during Argentina's win over Nigeria.

Windows 10 will reserve 7GB of your storage just for updates
Many Windows 10 machines, such as laptops, have been equipped with relatively small solid-state drives as a cost-saving measure. The amount of reserved space is not necessarily 7GB, and will change depending on the update itself.

The 1986 World Cup champion has a long history of hospitalizations for various reasons, including heart problems related to cocaine use, gastric bypass surgery and osteoarthritis in both knees.

In 2007 he checked himself into a clinic in Buenos Aires to help him overcome alcohol abuse problems.

The internal bleed was discovered by doctors shortly prior to Maradona flying to Mexico, where he is the coach of second division side Dorados de Sinaloa.

Maradona plans to return to manage the club for a second season when his recovery is complete.
