 Ballesteros Makes First Public Appearance Since Brain Surgery
Spanish golfing great Seve Ballesteros made his first public appearance on Sunday since undergoing four separate surgeries to remove a cancerous brain tumor.

Ballesteros, a five-time major winner, was on hand for a Spanish league match at Racing Santander's El Sardinero stadium, where he received a standing ovation from the fans, reports The Telegraph.

Dressed in jeans and a dark blazer, Ballesteros, who lives close by, waved to fans and smiled.

The 52-year-old underwent four operations to destroy a malignant brain tumor between October 5 and late December, when he was finally released from Madrid's La Paz hospital.

He is currently undergoing his fourth round of chemotherapy.

Ballestros is widely regarded as one of Europe's greatest ever players of golf that helped him win three British Opens and two Masters. He also recorded 50 victories on the European Tour and is credited with having transformed European golf.
