Maradona, 60, was admitted to the Ipensa clinic in La Plata, Argentina on Monday for anaemia and dehydration.

Argentine football great Diego Maradona underwent successful brain surgery on a blood clot on Tuesday night, his doctor said.

“We managed to successfully remove the clot. Diego coped well with the surgery,” Leopoldo Luque said at the icon’s private clinic in the capital Buenos Aires.

“It’s under control, there’s a little drainage (of blood). He’ll remain under observation.”

Maradona, 60, had gone to hospital in La Plate — where he is the coach at Gimnasia y Esgrima — on Monday after falling ill.
