Former Israeli President Shimon Peres is said by his doctor to be “doing great” after spending the night in hospital.

92 year old Peres was rushed to hospital with chest pains last night, days after he suffered a mild heart attack.

His personal physician told Israeli Army Radio today that Peres’ heart rate had returned to normal but it’s not yet clear when he would be discharged.
