Football legend Diego Maradona’s doctor, Leopoldo Luque, is being investigated for involuntary manslaughter in connection with the star’s death.

Local media reported that police raided Luque’s home and clinic on Sunday after witnesses reportedly said they had seen a fight between the star and Luque, which allegedly included a shove.

On Wednesday, Maradona died after suffering from a heart attack at his home in Buenos Aires. On November 11, Luque allowed Maradona to leave hospital eight days after undergoing brain surgery.

Luque said that he had done “everything he could, up to the impossible” to save his friend, and expressed willingness to give testimony in front of a judge even if he was not called in by investigators.

Argentina is coming out of three days of national mourning following the death of the football legend.

Maradona suffered from serious health problems for many years, including multiple heart attacks, hepatitis and a gastric bypass due to his issues with his weight.
