MILAN, Nov 5 (Reuters) Inter Milan's Luis Figo fractured his shin in yesterday's 1-1 draw at Juventus, tests revealed today.

''The Portuguese midfielder has fractured the fibula in his right leg,'' the Serie A champions said on their Web site (www.inter.it). ''Figo will undergo surgery tomorrow to stabilise the fracture.'' The former Real Madrid and Portugal player came off in the second half of the match after a challenge from Czech midfielder Pavel Nedved, who was booked for the foul.

Inter did not say how long Figo was expected to be out of action.
