Football star David Beckham is recovering well from Achilles tendon surgery and the former England captain will leave Finland today.

His surgeon Dr Sarkavi Orava says the AC Milan midfielder can move around a little bit more every day and his full recovery is expected.

The 34-year-old tore the tendon in AC Milan's 1-nil win over Chievo and flew to Finland for the operation performed by one of the world's top specialists

Despite the surgery being hailed as a success, Beckham appears certain to miss the World Cup starting on June the 11th.
