Diego Maradona has been rushed to hospital
Football legend Diego Maradona has been rushed to hospital, according to sources.
The 57-year-old was in attendance at Argentina's 2-1 victory over Nigeria on Tuesday night, which saw them qualify for the round of 16 in the World Cup.
He was extremely animated throughout the entirety of the match, but appears to have been taken to hospital since the full-time whistle.
Maradona had been seen dancing with Nigerian fans before the game started, and giving the middle finger when Marcos Rojo scored the winner.
He also appeared to fall asleep at one stage during the game.
The Argentinian was carried out of the stands, and has since been pictured in hospital.

Para los que preguntan, me informan que Diego está bien. Le bajó la presión. Ya lo estabilizaron.
