Man's Funeral Joke Makes Everyone Burst Into Laughs | Time

Prosecutors are investigating Diego Maradona’s doctor following allegations of negligence prior to the footballing legend’s death of heart attack in his Buenos Aires residence. His daughters have pressed for details about their father’s medication. Maradona had a successful operation on a brain blood clot earlier in November and had been due to be treated for alcohol dependency, said BBC News. They have searched the house and private clinic of Leopoldo Luque to establish if there is evidence of involuntary manslaughter reported BBC. The 60-year-old died of while he was  recuperating after an operation to remove a blood clot on his brain. Dr Luque,39, has denied any wrongdoing. In an emotional press conference on Sunday, Dr Luque – who has been described as the footballer’s personal physician – cried, saying he had done all he could to save the life of a friend. He said Maradona had been very sad lately. At one point, the doctor shot back at reporters: “You want to know what I am responsible for? For having loved him, for having taken care of him, for having extended his life, for having improved it to the end.” He also said he did not know why there was no defibrillator or who was responsible for the fact that there was no ambulance outside Maradona’s house. Diego “was very sad, he wanted to be alone, and it’s not because he didn’t love his daughters, his family, or those around him”, Dr Luque said. Maradona, who had earned and wasted millions while playing for Barcelona, Napoli and Argentina and has left behind an estate valued around $90 million reportedly leaving no will. He is survived by several children some of them recognized by him and others not making distribution of his inheritance a major problem for lawyers. He  had reportedly  told Giannina,31, his daughter,  to donate all his wealth, including properties, luxury cars and sponsorship contracts, to charity following a heated a war of words with her. Under Argentine law  a person can give away a fifth of their assets. At least two-thirds must be left to the spouse or offspring of the deceased. They later improved their relations and accused Madrona’s aides of not taking proper care of him. He separated from his only legally married spouse in 2003.Amidst joke that the soccer star had fathered his own team, he had recognized   daughters, Dalma, 33 and Giannina. There are several others  claim to be his children and live-in partners. edited by PK Chakravarty with BBC news inputs.pic courtesy :Time Magazine
