Renggli said, “The operation took place on Wednesday and was a success,”
“Sepp Blatter left the clinic again on Thursday to return home. He is fine.”
The former FIFA head is currently serving a 6-year ban from all football activities, for his involvement in a bribery scandal.
The office of the Swiss Attorney General, headed by Michael Lauber, initiated a proceeding against him for criminal mismanagement and misappropriation on September 25, 2016.

Sepp Blatter, who is the 8th president of the world football body, lost his position as leader as a result.
FIFA is now headed by Gianni Infantino, who emerged as the winner at an election conducted in February 2016.
