Madrid: Doctors say Spain`s King Juan Carlos is recovering well from surgery during which a benign tumour was removed from his right lung.
Hospital clinic in Barcelona says the 72-year-old monarch`s recovery from Saturday`s operation is proceeding in a "totally satisfactory" way.

A statement issued on Sunday night says the king got out of bed for a while and walked for a few minutes earlier in the day.

Crown Prince Felipe visited his father on Sunday and quoted him as saying: "As you can see, here I am, in one piece and in good shape."

The king has a history of heavy smoking, but the Royal Palace will not say if he has stopped.
