President Zeman says he has started using wheel chair

In an interview with news site Blesk.cz, President Miloš Zeman stated that health issues related to his legs have led him to start using a wheel chair. President Zeman said that he has been using the device while at Prague Castle as well as in his Lány country residence and that it is very comfortable. He is planning to be seated on wheel chair when he hands out state awards this October 28.

The president has been treated for a long time with foot neuropathy and diabetes. He also broke his arm after a fall last year.
