Veteran BBC broadcaster Sir David Attenborough underwent successful heart surgery to fit a pacemaker in London today.

The 87-year-old, who was forced to cancel a trip to Australia, had been told by his cardiologist “that he is in urgent need of a pacemaker,” according to a statement from his publicist.

A spokesman for the naturalist said the TV star was doing well following the procedure today.

He said: "Sir David has now had the operation and his doctors are satisfied with his progress."

I agree on that, here's hoping he makes a fully and speedy recovery.

I was just watching his programs the other day and they've always been something I've enjoyed because you always learn something from them and see thins you never knew about.

I don't know what the world would be like without his voice. Glad to see he's doing well.

A nature documentary is not the same without hearing the voice of Attenborough, he will get well soon...

I am actually watching the "Human Planet" with John Hurt, narrating.. I was trying to think who is the narrator, before I saw the credits and immediately my first thought was Sir David.. This then brought back many memories of all the nature documentaries, I watched as a youngster.

Get well soon Sir David, you were the inspiration to me becoming one with the woodland critters and nature in general.
