Maradona died of a heart attack aged 60 last Wednesday just two weeks after being discharged from hospital for a bleed on his brain.
The football legend died of ‘acute lung edema and chronic heart failure’, according to a preliminary autopsy report, in his sleep at noon while resting at his home in Tigre, Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Police raided the home of the personal physician Leopoldo Luque on Sunday and investigators are looking into all the medical staff involved with his care.
Luque was at his home while the search on the outskirts of Buenos Aires took place, while Argentinian TV stations have been broadcasting live images of police entering his clinic.
The searches were ordered after Maradona’s daughters Dalma and Giannina gave statements and questioned whether the medication their father was receiving was appropriate.
Maradona’s death came just three weeks after he underwent surgery on a blood clot in his brain (pictured), and less than a month after he turned 60
Argentinian media are reporting Luque could be questioned as an ‘imputado’, someone who is under official investigation on suspicion of possible mala praxis or negligence.
Diego Maradona fell and hit his head a week before his death and was left alone for three days after the accident, it has been claimed.
According to local reports, Maradona bumped his head after he fell inside his house. However he was reportedly not taken to hospital or given an MRI scan.
A lawyer for Gisela Madrid, Maradona’s nurse, was quoted by Argentine media as saying: ‘Maradona fell on the Wednesday of the week before his death.
‘He fell and hit his head, but they didn’t take him to the hospital for an MRI or CT scan …’
