Atletico Madrid forward Joao Felix has undergone surgery on his ankle, the La Liga champions said on Friday.

Felix, who cost a club record fee of 126 million euros ($149.02 million), has sustained four separate ankle injuries and started less than half of Atletico's La Liga games since joining from Benfica in 2019.

His injury problems continued at Euro 2020 as he missed Portugal's games against Germany and France with a muscle problem before coming on as a substitute in their 1-0 defeat by Belgium in the last 16.
