As the days go by, new data are revealed about the death of former soccer player Diego Armando Maradona, who died last Wednesday, November 25, at the age of 60, from a cardiorespiratory arrest in the house of Tigre, in which he had installed after his operation on the head.

Now, the forensic medical service that carried out the autopsy has brought to light some data that open more questions about the true cause of death of the Argentine idol. Among the findings there is a situation for which they cannot find an explanation: Maradona's heart weighed 500 grams, twice what a person of his characteristics usually weighs.

Doctors will have to determine what caused the condition. They suspect that it may be due to a malfunction of the cardiovascular system or the associated nervous system. For now, it has been confirmed that the clinical reason for Maradona's death was exacerbated heart failure that caused lung edema. They also discovered dilated cardiomyopathy in his heart.

In the coming days, the investigation will continue and different tests will be carried out to determine what caused Maradona's death. Different laboratories will analyze the samples of blood, urine and swabs that were taken during the autopsy, which will determine if you consumed any substance in addition to the prescribed medications.

Recently, a judge ordered to open an investigation and requested that the address and office of the psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov and Leopoldo Luque, the neurosurgeon who operated on him be searched on November 3, to determine if there was any type of medical negligence around on the death of Diego Armando Maradona.
