Argentine soccer legend Diego Maradona has been rushed to hospital in Buenos Aires suffering high blood pressure and a fever.

Maradona later returned to the psychiatric clinic in the Argentine capital, where he has been receiving drug rehabilitation - but the incident comes just months after the 43-year-old almost died from heart and lung problems.

The 1986 WORLD CUP-winning captain is currently bidding to transfer his treatment to Cuba - where he has been living for some time - but his ex-wife and daughters want him to stay in Argentina, fearing he won't get the treatment he needs on the Caribbean island.
