Maradona had his first gastric bypass 10 years ago, but has since gained weight and developed complications.

“He (Maradona) told me he was feeling fine, that he wasn’t in any pain,” the 1986 World Cup champion’s doctor Carlos Felipe Chaux was quoted as saying by BBC.

He will stay in the city for at least eight days before travelling to the capital Caracas to complete his recovery.
