Argentina legend Diego Maradona 'fine' after being seen by doctor during World Cup match



Argentina legend Diego Maradona said he was "fine" after being seen by a doctor during the team's World Cup victory over Nigeria on Tuesday.

 
The 57-year-old, who captained Argentina to World Cup victory in 1986, said his "neck hurt a lot".


Maradona posted a picture on social media showing medical staff with him at half-time of the 2-1 victory, but denied he had been taken to hospital.
"I want to tell everyone that I am fine," his Instagram post read.


"I was checked by a doctor and he recommended me to go home before the second half, but I wanted to stay because we were risking it all. How could I leave?"
