Legendary spinner Bishan Singh Bedi has undergone a bypass surgery at a city hospital a few days back after he complained of heart problems and he is recovering well.

The 74-year-old Bedi underwent the procedure 2-3 days back and he is expected to be discharged from the hospital soon, according to a close confidant of the former India captain.

"As far as I know, he was having some heart issues and he underwent a bypass surgery 2-3 days back on the advice of the doctors," he told.

"He is currently doing fine and recovering from the surgery and is expected to be discharged from the hospital soon," he added.

Bedi, a premier left-arm orthodox spinner in his playing days, represented India in 67 Tests and 10 ODIs between 1967 and 1979, scalping 266 and seven wickets respectively.
