The Spainish golfing great Seve Ballesteros is recovering well following several operations on a brain tumour and says results of tests last week after a first course of chemotherapy were quite good.

In a message posted on his website the 51-year-old five-time major winner says he's begin a second chemo course which he hopes will be as effective as the first.

Ballesteros was taken to Madrid's La Paz hospital at the start of October after suffering from dizziness and briefly losing consciousness.

He was diagnosed with a tumour and had four operations.
