Disturbing footage surfaced of Maradona who appeared to be unwell.
The 57-year-old was in attendance for Nigeria vs. Argentina as 'La Albiceleste' secured passage to the next round of the World Cup in dramatic fashion.
And he cut a animated figure during the game, giving the middle finger after Marcos Rojo's late winner.
Argentina may have gone through, but Diego Maradona will hit the headlines after tonight :sweat:
He wasn't subtle in his celebrations... :flushed: https://t.co/GsmIiHRwrn

Seeing Diego Maradona sticking his middle fingers up at Nigerian fans after they concede a heartbreaking goal with only mins to go in a World Cup.
Fifa should certainly look into this. Everyone deserves respect. You can't do this, no matter how big of a legend you are. #WorldCup pic.twitter.com/aHyOijr50o

Maradona has not gone to hospital. He was treated here at the Zenit Arena in the medical centre for a "blood pressure"-related issue. He is said to be fine at the moment.
