King Juan Carlos recovering from lung operation

King Juan Carlos underwent an operation to remove a non-malignant nodule from his right lung at the Hospital Clinic in Barcelona this morning. Latest medical reports say that he is doing well and is expected to be released from hospital in three or four days. His doctors say that the problem originates with his smoking. The King, 72, and whose most recent annual check-up revealed the problem, carried out his official duties until the last minute. The King's health, usually robust except when related to his liking for sports (skiing and sailing), caused a certain amount of consternation as news leaked out that he was being operated on for a tumour, which was denied by the latest bulletins from the hospital.
