King Juan Carlos has undergone a knee replacement. The operation was carried out on Saturday in Madrid, with the procedure lasting for an hour and a half.

Doctors confirmed that the operation – to replace a worn out earlier knee replacement procedure – was a complete success. The procedure was the fifteenth operation the King has undergone.

Members of the Royal household, including King Felipe and Queen’s Letizia and Sofia visited the King on Sunday, after he was moved from intensive care to a private room.
