Buenos Aires, Aug 14 (Xinhua) Soccer legend Diego Maradona says he wants to go to Beijing to watch the finals of the men’s soccer and basketball, in case Argentine teams in both sports advance in the Olympic competition. “Argentina has few possibilities of medals” in other sports, Maradona said Wednesday in San Juan, some 1,000 km from here, where he is scheduled to play a showball match with Chile.

Maradona said he is feeling “great” after he passed “very hard moments” for his addiction to drugs and alcohol.

“I had very hard moments, but now I wake up every morning lucid and am willing to call my daughters. I’m great,” he said.
