Sobral had waited several months for the operation as he suffered from a longstanding heart condition.

"He was very well prepared and the surgery went well," said surgeon Miguel Abecassis from the Santa Cruz hospital outside Lisbon which performed the operation on Friday.

Abecassis said Sobral would require a long period of convalescence but expected him in due course to be able to lead a "completely normal life".

Sobral, 27, won the Eurovision crown in Kiev in September with a jazzy number penned by his sister Luisa Sobral entitled Amar Pelos Dois (Love for Both of Us).
