Bolivian President Has Surgery

LA PAZ – President Evo Morales underwent arthroscopic surgery on his left knee at a clinic in Cochabamba, a city in central Bolivia, the official ABI news agency reported Sunday.

Morales will have to get “relative” rest while he recovers for three weeks after the surgery, which took place on Saturday night and lasted for about three hours, ABI said.

“The president, due to his intense daily and sports activity, was having pains in the anterior region of his left knee that had developed over a long time” and so “a medical board in recent days recommended the procedure,” ABI said.

“It was an old and chronic ailment that had hindered him not only from pursuing sports activities, but caused ongoing pain and difficulty in walking,” the news agency said.

The 51-year-old Morales is a big soccer fan, a sport that he plays regularly, and a few weeks ago he caused a stir when he deliberately kneed an opposing team member with his right leg after the match they were playing in had been halted.
