NJPW wrestler Hiroshi Tanahashi has been discharged from the hospital after undergoing surgery.

New Japan Pro Wrestling confirmed the former IWGP Heavyweight Champion’s release from the hospital on Twitter late last night.

“Tanahashi has been discharged from hospital after receiving treatment on his left elbow. Best wishes for a quick return to action,” they wrote alongside a quote-tweet from the man himself.

“I was hospitalized for a week with left elbow surgery,” said Tanahashi. “Today, I was discharged safely. I will do my best to return!”

Tanahashi last wrestled at the G1 Supercard in Madison Square Garden on April 6, where he lost to Zack Sabre Jr. No word on how long he’ll be out of action.
