Former president Václav Klaus released from hospital

Former Czech president Václav Klaus was released from hospital on Friday, where he spent several days getting treatment for high blood pressure. The 80-year-old former head of state said he was feeling good and had no other serious health problems.

Meanwhile, the incumbent president, Miloš Zeman, remains in Prague’s Central Military Hospital for the time being. Prague Castle said on Thursday that tests on the president had not identified any problems that could put his life at risk. He is reported to be suffering from dehydration and exhaustion. He should be released in the coming days and return to his duties on Wednesday.
