Diego Maradona leaves hospital after having surgery to remove blood clot on brain

Diego Maradona has been released from hospital just over a week after having surgery to remove a blood clot on his brain.

The Argentina football legend left the clinic in Buenos Aires where he underwent the procedure on Wednesday and will continue his recovery at home.

The World Cup winner, 60, had an emergency operation for a subdural hematoma, which is an accumulation of blood between a membrane and his brain.

Footage broadcast by local TV stations showed the former World Cup winner leaving the Olivos clinic in an ambulance.

He is expected to stay in a house near his older daughters.

Maradona’s personal doctor, neurologist Leopoldo Luque, told journalists that he had authorised the release.

He said the surgery had been a success.
