Argentina football icon, Diego Maradona is facing surgery after he was admitted to a hospital in Colombia.
Maradona is reportedly in hospital in the Colombian city of Cali where he is undergoing tests with the German Ochoa, same doctor who operated on his knees 17 years ago.
He is reportedly undergoing tests on his left knee, ahead of working at this year’s World Cup as a pundit.
The 57-year-old has reportedly been struggling with knee pain for four months.
Doctor Ochoa said: “It is a general check-up with an emphasis on his knees. We are making evaluations and the necessary diagnostic images, resonance and laboratory tests.
“In brief, we are doing everything to see the state of his knees and joints and we will base the decision (to operate) on that.”
