With an elbow strike, a basketball player loses one of his kidneys during the World Cup 

Serbian player Borica Simanic had to undergo surgery to remove his kidney after sustaining an injury during the Basketball World Cup against South Sudan.

Simanic underwent surgery at a hospital in the Philippine capital Manila after he injured his elbow at the hands of a South Sudanese national team player during a group stage match on August 30.

The Serbian team said on Monday that complications from the first operation led to him having to undergo another operation on September 3 to remove a kidney.

Serbian team doctor Dragan Radovanovic said they “hope and hope that everything goes well after this operation.”

The injury occurred before the end of Serbia's first-round game against South Sudan when Simanic was defending against opposing player Noni Omot under his country's basket.

Umut hit Simanic with his elbow, causing him to scream in pain and immediately run away.

Simanic (25 years old) plays for Spanish club Zaragoza.
