Ballesteros undergoes more surgery

6:20 am on 17 October 2008

The condition of the Spanish golfer Seve Ballesteros deteriorated yesterday and he's undergone more surgery to ease swelling on the brain.

48 hours after an operation to remove a brain tumour, Ballesteros lost consciousness because of the pressure on his brain, but doctors in Madrid's La Paz hospital say his situation is now stable and under control.
