With the manner in which he reacted to every miss during Argentina’s match with Nigeria, its not a surprise that he did too much for his health.
Argentina football legend, Diego Maradona gave the medics at the Saint Petersburg stadium a scare when he started having difficulties walking after the game.
The 57-year-old reacted to his team’s late winner by screaming and cursing but things turned bad after the final whistle.
Argentina media reported that Maradona had suffered a spike in his blood pressure, after a video of him being helped out of his seat emerged.
Argentinian newspaper Ole later reported that Maradona was able to walk and had gone to his hotel after being attended to.
Maradona has had a series of health problems, including cocaine addiction.
In 2007 he reportedly came close to death after being admitted to a hospital in Buenos Aires to be treated for hepatitis and substance abuse.
