Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is in "good physical shape" after undergoing planned cancer surgery in Cuba.

A lesion in Chavez's pelvic region was completely removed.

Chavez, 57, had two operations to remove a cancerous tumour from the same area last year.

His renewed ill-health comes months before he is due to stand for re-election in October.

The exact nature and extent of Chavez's illness has never been made public, leading to persistent rumours that his health is worse than officially acknowledged.
