XtraTime Web Desk: Argentine football legend Diego Maradona confirmed that he is “fine” after a medical treatment. The incident happened during the match between Argentina and Nigeria which they won 2-1.

Maradona, who threatened to steal the show with his antics in St Petersburg on Tuesday, was pictured being treated by paramedics after Argentina moved into the last 16 thanks to a dramatic 2-1 victory.

Amid concerns over his health, the 1986 World Cup winner denied being taken to the hospital, and revealed he was told to leave at half-time.

Maradona, 57, wrote on Facebook that he was fine after suffering from a sore neck.

"I want to tell everyone that I am fine, that I am not, nor was I, hospitalised," he wrote.

"At half-time of the game against Nigeria, my neck hurt a lot and I suffered a decompensation.

"I was checked by a doctor and he recommended that I leave before the second half, but I wanted to stay because we were playing for everything. How could I leave?

"I send a kiss to everyone. Thanks for the support."

Maradona was seen dancing, celebrating and sleeping before offering middle-finger salutes to fans after Marcos Rojo's 86th-minute winner.

Argentina will face France in Kazan in the last 16 on Saturday.
