Autopsy reveals no drink or illegal drugs at time of Argentina legend's death

The 1986 World Cup winner died of a heart attack on 25 November at the age of 60.

The autopsy said Maradona had problems with his kidneys, heart and lungs.

It had been ordered as part of an investigation into Maradona's death to see if there was any negligence in the healthcare he was provided.

Maradona, widely regarded as one of the greatest footballers of all time, had a successful operation on a brain blood clot earlier in November and had been due to be treated for alcohol dependency.

"We will do it [the surgery] today."

Maradona was admitted to a private hospital with signs of depression on Monday, three days after his 60th birthday.
