President Zeman improving, but will remain hospitalized

Former president Miloš Zeman (79) who is recovering at Prague’s Motol Hospital after undergoing surgery to deal with a blood clot in his leg is reported to be improving. Doctors say Mr. Zeman is recovering as well as can be expected and is rehabilitating, although his condition remains serious due to the risk of further blood clots. His condition is linked to diabetes. A hospital spokesperson said it is not clear for how long Zeman will need to be hospitalized.
