Speculations on president's health

PRESIDENT Rudolf Schuster felt tired and decided to stay at home for a few days, according to his spokesman.

Following Schuster's cancellation of his meetings from June 26 until June 30, speculation appeared on the condition of his health.

But spokesman Ján Füle gave his assurance that the head of state was not seriously ill.

"The president is fine. He just felt tired and that is why he stayed home," Füle said.

Over the last three years Schuster has been through several serious health complications including an operation in Austria on a perforated colon in 2000 in which many feared for the president's life.

But Füle said the president's current situation was not remotely that critical and that Schuster's hospitalisation was completely out of the question.
