Cape Town - Springbok wing Bryan Habana has undergone a successful operation after he was injured playing for French club Toulon.

Habana sustained a thigh muscle injury in the European Cup match against English side Exeter on December 7.

The Springbok flyer was forced off the field in the 37th minute of the match at Sandy Park Stadium after pulling up sharply as he tried to accelerate.

Habana went under the knife early this week, with the operation deemed successful.

He is expected to be sidelined for at least two months.

He posted the following picture via his official Twitter account:
