A statement from Team GB reads: “Kate is relaxed and comfortable and recovering from the surgery. Her recovery will continue to be monitored by Team GB medical staff. No timescale will be placed on any possible return to action.”

Walsh will not play in GB’s third pool match vs Belgium at 7pm today (Thursday).
