More details on the series of events in the final hours before the death of Diego Maradona are now been released.
According to the Sun, Maradona’s last words before he died were: “I don’t feel well.”
The widely revered football legend died on Thursday from a heart attack, two weeks after he underwent surgery on a brain bleed.
It can now be revealed Maradona, 60, ate breakfast before telling nephew Johnny Esposito he didn’t feel well and was going to lie down again, The Sun added
A nurse who was looking after Maradona, following his release from the hospital after his brain scan operation, phoned for an ambulance and several responded.
But it was already too late and the retired footballer was dead by the time help arrived.
The last hours of the former Napoli and Barcelona star’s shockingly short life were played out in Argentine media as an autopsy expected to show he had died from a massive heart attack.
One described how he had awoken in the morning looking pale and complaining of feeling cold.
From Nigeria to England, tributes have since been flowing in for Maradona who would be sorely missed for all that he has done for the round leather game.
