Diego Maradona is reportedly set to undergo surgery in Argentina after suffering from a stomach bleed, the UK Mirror reports.
The football legend, 58, had failed to show up for training at Mexican side Dorados where he is now a coach.
It has now emerged that he has been admitted, after internal bleeding in his stomach was detected during a routine check up.
Maradona will undergo an endoscopy at a clinic in Olivos, with children Gianna, Janita and Diego Jr at his side.
Maradona was expected to return to Mexico for Dorados’ first Ascenso MX season clash against Celaya.
