Buenos Aires: Seven health professionals who tended to Diego Maradona in the days before his death have been charged with involuntary manslaughter.

Maradona, who led Argentina to victory in the 1986 World Cup, died of a heart attack November 25 at a rented residence outside Buenos Aires following brain surgery two weeks earlier. He was 60.

A medical board's report given to prosecutors this month concluded that Maradona was in agony for more than 12 hours, did not receive adequate treatment and could still be alive if he had been properly hospitalised.

Prosecutors on Wednesday charged neurosurgeon Leopoldo Luque and psychiatrist Agustina Cosachov, the two leaders of Maradona's medical team, and five other health professionals with involuntary manslaughter.

A doctor, a psychologist, two nurses and a nurse coordinator were the others.

The medical panel's report said the patient's signs of risk of life were ignored, adding that Maradona showed unequivocal signs of a prolonged agony period of at least 12 hours.

The care that Maradona received at the rented house, the report said, did not fulfill the minimum requirements for a patient with his medical history, and that he would have survived with adequate hospitalization.

Maradona had suffered a series of medical problems, some due to excesses of drugs and alcohol.

He was reportedly near death in 2000 and 2004.
