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 indiatoday.in/sports.
