Sophia Loren, one of the most enduring movie divas of the 20th century, underwent emergency surgery following a fall in her bathroom at her Swiss home.

The Oscar-winning Italian film star sustained several "serious fractures" to different parts of her hip and femur.

The star's representative has now confirmed the surgery "went well and now she needs to rest and everything will be resolved". 

The spokesperson said she had an accidental fall in her home in Geneva on Sunday and had suffered a broken hip.
