Buenos Aires:

Football legend Diego Maradona, who is undergoing drug rehabilitation therapy in Argentina, is set to go to Brazil in the next few days to continue his treatment, medical sources said. The 43-year-old is set to be transferred to Sao Paulo but will be accompanied by his current medical team. The decision for the transfer was taken during a meeting including family and friends of the 1986 World Cup winning captain and medical staff. Maradona, who came close to death last month with heart and lung problems, has been fighting a well-documented cocaine problem since 2000. (AP)
