Lance Armstrong is recovering from surgery on his broken collarbone.

His surgeon says Armstrong's collarbone was broken in four pieces, making the surgery more challenging. Dr Doug Elenz inserted a steel plate and 12 screws to stabilise the collarbone.

Elenz says the 37-year-old cyclist was in surgery for about three hours on Wednesday and must take a few days off before he can resume training on a stationary bike.

Armstong has said he still hopes to ride in the Giro d'Italia in May and the Tour de France in July. – (Sapa, March 2009)
