Argentina won 2-1 to reach the last 16, where they were knocked out of the tournament by eventual winners France.Maradona was taken into hospital in 2004 with severe heart and respiratory problems linked to cocaine use. He later underwent drug rehabilitation in Cuba and Argentina before a stomach-stapling operation in 2005 helped him lose weight.advertisementIn 2007 he checked himself into a clinic in Buenos Aires to help him overcome alcohol abuse problems.In recent months he has walked with the aid of crutches due to problems with his knees.The unexpected news of his admittance to hospital on Friday came just hours after Maradona’s lawyer confirmed he would coach in Mexico for a second consecutive season.Maradona took over at struggling Dorados de Sinaloa in September and got them into the playoffs where they lost to Atletico San Luis.”Diego Maradona has arranged to continue with the Dorados de Sinaloa and will stay as coach of the team for the whole season,” his agent Matias Morla wrote on twitter.The club said his assistant Jose Maria Martinez would lead the team until Maradona returned.Also Read | Predrag Mijatovic criticises Gareth Bale for lacking leadership qualitiesAlso Read | Chelsea fan banned for 3 years after being found guilty of homophobic chantsAlso Read | Liverpool not underestimating ‘world’s best side’ Manchester City: KloppFor sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to Like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter for Sports news, scores and updates.Get real-time alerts and all the news on your phone with the all-new India Today app. Download from Post your comment Do You Like This Story?

Behind the scenes of the Goodman expansion

As work continues to progress well on the Goodman School of Business expansion, Andrew Gaudes is most looking forward to the sense of community the completed project will create.The new Goodman Dean led The Brock News on a behind-the-scenes tour of the construction site Tuesday, Aug. 22, sharing his thoughts on the facility and its future potential.“I think what we’re going to see is a place that has a gravitational pull for the business programs, for the business faculty, students, staff and the business community,” Gaudes said after a detailed walkthrough of the building. “They’re really going to have a sense of place when it’s completed in January 2019.”The $22-million project is a combination of new construction and an ambitious overhaul of Goodman’s existing layout and facilities. It includes 79,000 square feet of new and renovated space, six new and nine renovated classrooms with state-of-the-art technology, a large two-storey engagement atrium, five employer interview rooms and the Bloomberg financial research lab, as well as additional study, research and office space.Gaudes described the atrium, with a perimetre made of glass, as the “heart of the school.“It’s going to be a major space for receptions, public events and speaking opportunities,” he said, while also emphasizing the role it will play as a hub of activity for students.The space will be the first exposure many visitors have to Goodman and will include a sizeable video wall used for promoting events on campus and in the business community. Visible from outside the building at night, the screens will create “a real buzz coming from the business school that never existed before,” Gaudes said.He believes all components of the expansion will add up to create an environment people will want to return to.“A business school is about collaboration. It’s about water-cooler moments, gathering spaces, discussions and group meetings,” he said. “That’s what creates belongingness, retention, a sense of cohort and appreciation for the school and institution where you’re studying.” read more
