Fans gathered outside the hospital where Diego Maradona underwent successful brain surgery for a blood clot in a specialist private clinic in Buenos Aires.
Some fans brought flags and sang Argentina legend Diego Maradona’s name, others played football as they waited for news.
“We managed to successfully remove the clot. Diego coped well with the surgery,” Dr. Leopoldo Luque said Tuesday at a private clinic in Buenos Aires.
“It’s under control, there’s a little drainage (of blood). He’ll remain under observation.”
