Gimnasia de La Plata Diego Maradona has undertaken successful brain surgery according to his public relations team.
Maradona was hospitalized in Argentina on Monday with a subdural hematoma, announced to reporters by his personal doctor, Leopoldo Luque. The PR statement revealed that the operation was a success and went as planned.
following the Argentine’s admission on Monday, his personal doctor said it was not an emergency situation.
“I didn’t see him as I would like to see him,” he said as quoted by Argentinian television’s ESPN F90.
“We need to be calm. This is not an emergency situation. Diego is well, but he could be better. You see some situations that make you believe that it is good to come to a clinic, to hydrate, draw blood.”
“Let’s see how many days. Let’s see how much can be done. My idea is to have at least three days for him to hydrate well. It’s looking at what’s best for him. There is no emergency.”
The 60-year-old was admitted to hospital last year in January with internal bleeding in the stomach.
