San Juan: Puerto Rican actor Jorge Alberti was admitted to a hospital Friday to undergo emergency surgery for a possible hernia, his agent said in a press release.

Alberti, who is here vacationing with his wife and daughter, "suffered severe abdominal pain", Alberto Navarro said.

"Jorge is very athletic, he enjoys doing a lot of exercises," Navarro said. "We trust in God that everything will go well, and we pray for his prompt recovery."

Alberti is currently co-starring with Gaby Spanic in the telenovela ‘La Otra Cara Del Alma’.

Though most of his work has been in television, Alberti`s credits include a role in the film ‘The Argentine’, which featured Puerto Rican Oscar winner Benicio del Toro as iconic revolutionary Ernesto ‘Che’ Guevara.
