Sean Connery Has Kidney Tumor Surgery

The Associated Press reports that former James Bond star Sean Connery has undergone surgery for a kidney tumor and is recovering at his home in the Bahamas:

The 75-year-old Scottish actor underwent the operation a few weeks ago in New York, spokesman James Barron said.

“He’s very fit – he’s 100 percent plus,” Barron said of the former James Bond actor, who won a 1988 Academy Award as supporting actor for “The Untouchables.” In 2000, he was knighted by Queen Elizabeth II.

Connery told The Sunday Times that he “was opened in five places.”

His brother, Neil, told the newspaper that “as far as I’m led to believe, the tumor was benign. He seems to be quite upbeat about it.”
