Sochi Olympic organizers say the Russian worker struck by a speeding bobsled has undergone surgery and is conscious and in stable condition.

A forerunning sled crashed into the worker Thursday at the Sanki Sliding Center.

The unidentified worker broke both legs and was airlifted to a nearby hospital.

Sochi organizing committee spokeswoman Alexandra Kosterina says Friday the injured worker is Russian. She says the operation went "successfully" and "he's conscious, he's stable and he's good right now."

IOC spokesman Mark Adams says "we all wish him a speedy recovery."
