Former Super Eagles captain, John Obi Mikel, has successfully undergone surgery at the Princess Grace Hospital in the United Kingdom.

The former Chelsea super star took to his Instagram today, June 22, 2024, to share a couple of pictures to reveal the development.

In the first picture, the 37-year-old ex-Nigeria international was seen wearing a lab coat while posing on his feet with his hands on his waist, captioning the post “Pre Op let’s go” with a power emoji.

This was followed by another picture in which he was seen lying on a hospital bed with his thump up while wearing a big smile, an indication that the surgery was indeed successful.

He captioned the picture with “All good”, adding a thumbs-up emoji and ending the caption with “#PostOp”.

The 2013 AFCON winner was last seen at a public event between June 8 and 9 when he attended the 2024 Soccer Aid at Chelsea’s home ground, Stamford Bridge.

Before today, the last time he posted on his Instagram page with over 3 million followers was on June 10 when he shared a video in which he was commenting on the omission of Jadon Sancho and Marcus Rashford from England’s Euro 2024 squad.

During the last Champions League final at Wembley, Mikel was pictured together with former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson in what the Nigerian international expressed delight that Sir Ferguson has finally forgiven him.

The two men had a face off following transfer saga way back in 2005 when he was almost joining Manchester United but made last minute U-turn to head to the Stamford Bridge.
