Football legend, Diego Maradona reportedly suffered a head injury after a fall at his home a week before he died from a heart attack but was never taken to the hospital. Italian newspaper La Repubblica claim that the Argentine icon who had only recently had surgery on his brain to remove a blood clot, was not taken for a scan after falling and hitting his head at home.  A lawyer representing a nurse who worked for Maradona is reported to have said: 'Maradona fell to the ground seven days before his death. He fell and hit his head but they didn't take him to the hospital for an MRI or a CT scan.' The shocking revelation comes as Maradona's personal doctor Leopoldo Luque is being probed over medical negligence as police launch an investigation into his death.  The report also confirmed speculation that Maradona was alone in his house in Buenos Aires when he died from a heart attack aged 60. An autopsy report said he died in his sleep after suffering heart failure.
