London, Jan 1 (ANI): Sir Paul McCartney underwent a secret heart surgery last autumn, it has been revealed.

According to a source, the former Beatle had coronary angioplasty - a procedure that opens up arteries and allows a greater flow of blood.

Paul had been complaining about not feeling well and saw a Harley Street specialist at The London Clinic, The Sun quoted a source, as saying.

Tests were carried out and the decision was taken to operate. Paul had the angioplasty in a private hospital. It was all very routine but any work on your heart is a big deal, the source added.

The legendary singer, who is currently embroiled in a bitter divorce battle with estranged wife Heather Mills, made a good recovery as he joined Aussie pop princess Kyle Minogue on-stage on New Years day to perform his hit single Dance Tonight during Jools Hollands BBC2 New Year special.

Luckily Paul is in very good shape. He does regular exercise and is fit, a friend said.

“He eats well and does not carry any excess weight. He has always been in exceptional health, which is remarkable when you think of the rock n roll lifestyle he once had, the friend added.

A spokesman for Macca confirmed that the surgery had been performed in the autumn.

It was a routine medical operation, the spokesman said. (ANI)
