BUENOS AIRES, July 30: Argentine football legend Diego Maradona on Monday praised his doctors for performing successful surgery on his right knee.The 58-year-old posted a short video on his Instagram account in which he is seen walking with the help of medical staff at the Olivos private clinic in Buenos Aires.
"Today I walked again like I did when I was 15," Maradona said in a written message accompanying the video. "Many thanks to my surgeon @ Dr.Eyharchet and to all those who are taking care of me at #ClinicaOlivos."Details of last Wednesday's operation have not been disclosed but Maradona has long suffered from arthritis in both knees.
The 1986 World Cup winner, who last month ended an 11-month spell as head coach of Mexican second division side Dorados, will also undergo shoulder surgery in the coming weeks, according to Argentine press reports. (UNI-Xinhua)
