Spanish king leaves hospital after surgery
A smiling King Juan Carlos I of Spain was seen leaving a Barcelona hospital Tuesday, three days after undergoing successful surgery to remove a benign growth from his lung.
Television footage showed the 72-year-old king walking from the hospital unaided and surrounded by members of the medical team who had treated him.
Earlier Tuesday the hospital said he would be discharged after making a speedy recovery following surgery on Saturday to remove the growth from his right lung.
