Seve Ballesteros improving after surgery

Seve Ballesteros is responding well to treatment on his brain tumour, the Madrid hospital treating the Spanish golfer said on Wednesday.

The 51-year-old had a third operation to reduce brain swelling and remove more of the tumour last Friday.

“The patient Mr Severiano Ballesteros has a favourable trend in his neurological status but needs to be further controlled in the Intensive Care Unit,” La Paz hospital said in a statement.

Five-time major winner Ballesteros is suffering from an oligoastrocytoma, a tumour that affects two types of brain cell, and spreads diffusely inside the brain cavity.
