Former Prime Minister of Malaysia, Mahathir Mohamad, is now recuperating from a successful medical procedure, after being hospitalised on Jan. 7.
It is his second hospitalisation in less than a month.
According to an update on his Facebook page on Sunday (Jan. 9), he is "fully awake and in high spirits" and is "recuperating well".
The update was posted in the form of a media statement issued by Malaysia's National Heart Institute, the Institut Jantung Negara.
While the statement did not mention details of the procedure, it said that the procedure, carried out by a team of doctors, "was uneventful and went as planned".
