Maradona 'fine' after scare, chided for obscene gesture

ST PETERSBURG: Argentina great Diego Maradona said on Wednesday he was fine after appearing to take ill during the South Americans' roller-coaster World Cup win over Nigeria on Tuesday, but found himself in hot water again after making an obscene gesture at the game. "I want to let you know I'm fine, I'm not nor was I hospitalised," the 57-year-old said via Instagram. Maradona, who was seen being helped to walk from his seat amid the excitement of Tuesday's game in St. Petersburg, said a doctor had suggested he left at halftime after his neck hurt and he felt he might faint. "But I wanted to stay, because it was all or nothing. How could I leave?" he said.
