Report: Maradona taken to hospital after Argentina victory

It is being reported that Diego Maradona has been taken to hospital in Russia.

It comes after Argentina’s last-gasp 2-1 victory tonight over Nigeria at the World Cup.

The Independent in the UK said he was seen being helped from his seat at the St Petersburg Stadium, before collapsing into a chair there.

Russian paramedics attended to the 57-year-old and he was taken to a local hospital shortly afterwards, the newspaper reported.
