Maradona’s Medical Team Charged With Homicide In Soccer Legend’s Death


Eight members of the medical team that tended to all-time soccer great Diego Maradona before his death two years ago have been charged with homicide in Argentina.

The legendary superstar was 60 when he died of cardiac arrest on November 25, 2020. Widely regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, he was plagued throughout his career by drug and alcohol addiction. In a 236-page court ruling reviewed by Reuters, the judge pointed the finger at doctors, nurses, and a psychologist who treated him in his final days.

“As soon as I saw the cause, I said it was homicide,” Mario Baudry, a lawyer for one of Maradona’s sons, told Reuters. “I fought for a long time and here we are, with this stage completed.”
