The Jerusalem Post reports: Israel’s ninth president him Shimon Peres, 92, is to be released from hospital on Tuesday.

Peres suffered a mild heart attack Thursday morning and was rushed by ambulance from his Tel Aviv home to Sheba Medical Center Tel Hashomer, where he underwent a catheterization process. By the afternoon he showed signs of recovery and was impatient to get back to work, but doctors insisted that he remain under observation.

On Saturday they permitted him to walk around and were amazed at the speed with which he was back to his usual self.

Peres is a workaholic whose drive and energy keep him alert. The heart attack was ill-timed in that it prevented Peres from attending the World Economic Forum Conference in Davos, which opens on Wednesday.
