Argentine soccer great Diego Maradona was briefly detained at Rio de Janeiro's international airport on Thursday after arguing with airline staff and breaking objects in the VIP room, police said.

Police held Maradona, 45, for several hours in the morning before releasing him. A police officer told Reuters he had boarded a flight to return to Buenos Aires later on Thursday.

Maradona, who has been plagued by health problems since he retired in 1997, had played a benefit game organised by ex-Brazilian star and current Japan coach Zico in Rio de Janeiro on Wednesday.

He arrived late at Tom Jobim International Airport for a flight back to Argentina and began arguing with staff of the TAM airline, police said.
