Ill Maradona delays Asian tour again until August

Argentine football legend Diego Maradona has postponed his Asian commercial tour, including a trip to Vietnam, for the second time to have more time for recovery from alcoholism. Organisers of the tour told Thanh Nien newspaper that the 46-year-old would now be in Vietnam 3-5 August and play a match against Vietnamese stars. “Maradona wishes to send his apologies to Vietnamese fans and assures there will be no more changes,” Luis Maria Lestani said. The trip to Vietnam had first been planned for 1-3 June and then put off to 16-18 June.
