LEUVEN - The billiard legend Raymond Ceulemans, who won so many world titles in his best years, has undergone a surgery and is back home now. The doctors implanted a pacemaker in the upper chest of the Belgian billiard player, who turns 80 this year.

Grandson Peter: ,,My grandfather had a very low pulse (35) and was taken to the Imelda Hospital in Bonheiden last week. The operation was successful, but there were some minor complications. He still has to take a rest for a month. It is not worrying, for sure, grandpa will be good again after his weeks of rest.''

The pacemaker is a device that brings the heart in the right rhythm. When the heart rhythm deviates, the pacemaker gives electrical impulses in order to bring the heart in the good rhythm again.

Raymond Ceulemans will miss the next games in the league competitons. The greatest billiards player of all timeS still is playing in team competitions in Belgium (Mr. 100 Lier) and the Netherlands.
