An autopsy report leaked to the Argentinian media alleged that Diego Maradona died in his sleep after suffering from heart failure, according to the Daily Mail.
Maradona’s death comes just two weeks after leaving the hospital after surgery to remove a blood clot from his brain.
Medics have observed dilated cardiomyopathy, a medical condition in which the heart muscle is damaged and swollen and not able to pump enough blood to the rest of the body.
The 60-year-old’s nephew, Johnny Esposito, was the last person to see him alive.
Maradona complained to him that he was not feeling well and wanted to rest.
Doctors with an appointment to see Maradona went to his estate on Wednesday and found him unresponsive.
The football legend’s body arrived at the presidential palace in Argentina today, ahead of a three-day mourning period in the country.
