Football legend Diego Maradona underwent successful eye surgery on Tuesday, his surgeon said.

Maradona, 52, underwent surgery to correct presbyopia, age-related loss of ability to focus on close-by objects, in the western Argentine city of Mendoza.

Maradona was expected to undergo a check-up before returning to Buenos Aires and then on to Dubai where he is a sports ambassador. — AFP
