The Spanish golf star Seve Ballesteros is responding well to treatment on his brain tumour.

The 51-year-old had a third operation last Friday night to reduce brain swelling and remove more of the tumour, and his doctors report a favourable trend in his neurological status, though he remains in intensive care.
