Football icon, Diego Maradona in hospital, to undergo knee surgery


Argentina football icon, Diego Maradona is reportedly in hospital in the Colombian city of Cali where he is undergoing tests with the German Ochoa, same doctor who operated on his knees 17 years ago.

The 57-year-old is reportedly undergoing tests on his left knee, after struggling with knee pain for four months, ahead of working at this year’s World Cup as a pundit.

“It is a general check-up with an emphasis on his knees. We are making evaluations and the necessary diagnostic images, resonance and laboratory tests. In brief, we are doing everything to see the state of his knees and joints and we will base the decision (to operate) on that”, Doctor Ochoa said.
