Maradona's doctor provides update on Argentina legend's health after hospital admission


Diego Maradona Gimnasia Coronavirus 01092020

Diego Maradona's doctor has said that the legendary figure is in hospital suffering from anemia and dehydrationbut is showing signs of improvement.

Speaking to reporters outside the Ipensa clinic in La Plata, 37 miles south of Buenos Aires, Maradona's personal doctor Leopoldo Luque said that the 60-year-old's condition is improving.

“He is much better than yesterday, and he is looking forward to leaving. I would like him to stay one more day,” Luquetold local media.“He is anemic, a little dehydrated, we must correct this and see that he continues to improve. We want to improve his condition as much as possible, and we need a little more time for that."

Luque admittedthat he had a minor disagreement with Maradonaover the length of his stay in the hospital, with the doctor looking to keep the World Cup winner hospitalised for a bit longer.

"Because he sees himself better, he wants to leave,"Luque said."I asked him to hang on. He had a good night and is in a good mood. We were joking around and we walked a bit inside the clinic. He's evolving as we expected."

Fans ofGimnasia La Plata, the local club where Maradona serves as head coach, flocked outside the hospital – a gesture that Luque said can be beneficial for the icon's recovery.

“What he needs most is the support of the people,” Luque said.

Maradona, who turned 60 on Friday, has had a number of health scares over the years.The former Boca Juniors, Barcelona andNapoli star underwent gastric bypass surgery in 2005 to help in his battle with weight, then underwent the same procedure again in 2015.

He was also admitted to hospital in January 2019 with internal bleeding in the stomach, while he fell ill at the 2018 World Cup inRussia,being filmed passing out at the game between Argentina andNigeria.
