Buenos Aires: Former Argentine soccer player and coach Diego Maradona escaped serious injury on Monday when his car was involved in a collision with a bus near his Buenos Aires home, local media and officials said.

Maradona, widely seen as one of the best soccer players in history, underwent routine tests after the accident in the capital's Ezeiza suburb, hospital director Oscar Sico told local television.

Maradona's girlfriend was with him at the time and was also out of danger.

"The two are in a perfect condition; they've hardly suffered any injuries and they came to the hospital by themselves as a precautionary measure," Sico said.

Maradona, 50, is waiting to start a new coaching job at Al Wasl in the United Arab Emirates after failing to keep his last job as head of the national team.

The former player's mother is in hospital at the moment and local media said he was on his way to visit her when the accident took place.

Earlier this week, he stepped in to demand more support for Argentina as Lionel Messi, teammates and coach Sergio Batista came under fire from media and fans for their performance at the Copa America.
