Diego Maradona slurs his words and admits: ‘I’m bruised’ in a shocking last video of the Argentina icon taken just days before he died.
Just days before Maradona died, he was admitted to the private Olivos Clinic in Buenos Aires for an operation to remove a hematoma, a blood clot in his brain.
In the video which was recorded at Maradona’s house in the San Andres de Tigre neighbourhood, he was heard telling his doctor he was bruised but was okay.
“I’ve taken a bump, but everything is fine,” Maradona said in a message addressed to his doctor Leopoldo Luque.
“You know I don’t like intimate [moments] but when I’m with good people I come out of my shell. A kiss, Luque. Leopoldo Jacinto Luque.”
His cook Romina Milagros Rodriguez, who revealed at the weekend she was asked to give Maradona mouth-to-mouth after he suffered cardiac arrest, could be seen in the background.
