Spanish golf legend Seve Ballesteros has undergone an operation to remove a brain tumour, and is now in stable condition, a Madrid hospital said Wednesday.
"The patient Severiano Ballesteros yesterday underwent a surgical operation performed by the medical team of the Neurosurgery Service of the La Paz Hospital."
"The operation, aimed at removing a brain tumor, began at 9:00am and ended without complications.
"The patient will spend a post-operative period in the intensive care unit. He is currently conscious and in stable condition, although he cannot receive visits in the coming days."
The hospital said the next medical procedure would be undertaken when he is able to leave the intensive care unit.
Ballesteros was taken to the hospital on October 6 after he collapsed and briefly lost consciousness at Madrid airport.
