SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian far-right and poll-leading presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro was recovering without complications after undergoing emergency surgery on Wednesday, a week after he was stabbed at a campaign rally, the hospital treating him said on Thursday.

The Einstein hospital in Sao Paulo said in a written statement that late Wednesday's surgery to repair an obstruction in Bolsonaro's small intestines was successful and there were no complications.
