Seve Ballesteros, who was admitted to Madrid’s La Paz hospital on Monday, has been diagnosed with a brain tumour and will undergo a biopsy on Tuesday.
He came out of Intensive Care on Friday, and on Sunday he announced to the world that he was suffering from a brain tumour. Doctors will decide on possible treatment after the biopsy on Tuesday.
Ballesteros suffered from an arthritic back and knee problems late in his career and retired in 2007.
He won 87 titles during an illustrious career, including the British Open in 1979, 1984 and 1988 and the US Masters in 1980 and 1983, and was also inspirational in the Ryder Cup, winning 20 points from 37 matches, as well as captaining Europe to victory at Valderrama in 1997.
We wish him well and a speedy recovery.
