Nelson Freire undergoes 4-hour operationmain
The Brazilian pianist, who fractured his upper right arm in a fall in Rio de Janeiro, has undergone a complex four-hour operation, which surgeons believe was successful.
He is expected to leave hospital in 2-3days.
Freire, who is 75, will be out of action for three months.
‘He was trying to proect his hands when he fell onto his shoulder,’ said his companion Rosana Martins.
