Football legend, Diego Maradona, was reportedly hit by blood pressure after Nigeria and Argentina match on Tuesday at St. Petersburg in Russia.
This was made known in a video clip posted on Twitter by Fernando Schwartz, a well-known sports journalist in Mexico.
In the video, the Argentina great appeared to need help to walk after watching his national team dramatically beat Nigeria to survive in the World Cup.
Argentine media, including newspaper La Nacion, said Maradona was treated for low blood pressure in the stadium and was able to leave normally shortly afterwards.
In the video, a man was seen helping Maradona to stay on his feet as he was led away from his seat overlooking the pitch and into an adjacent room.
Also, a photograph posted on Twitter showed two medical staff attending to Maradona while he was sitting.
However, before he had a health breach, Maradona was seen on camera flicking his middle fingers toward the crowd as he celebrates Argentina’s victory over Nigeria.
The Argentine website of sports broadcaster ESPN said Maradona was taken to a hospital. Reuters reports.
