    President of the Republic Demetris Christofias was discharged on Tuesday evening from the Nicosia General Hospital, where he underwent medical tests after having felt unwell earlier in the day.

    Speaking to the media on his way out, a cheerful President Christofias said he was "fine" and thanked the doctors and staff for the care he received for a few hours.

    Asked if he would be returning to work immediately or would be taking some time off to rest, President Christofias implied that he would not be staying away from his duties.

    Head of the Cardiology Department of the Nicosia General Hospital Evagoras Nicolaides told reporters that the results of the first set of tests were satisfactory and that the second tests later on in the evening "also proved to be satisfactory."

    "The President wanted to go and rest at home so we followed the procedure we follow with all patients and let him go home to rest. Due to the President`s medical history, more specialised tests may follow in the near future," he added.

    Replying to questions, Nicolaides said no decision had been taken for the President to return to the Hospital for tests on Wednesday.

    Asked if the doctors had recommended that the President rests, Nicolaides said "unfortunately the President is obsessed with his job and it seems that whatever we say he will continue to try to work."

    Replying to other questions, Nicolaides said that "possibly exhaustion and his heavy schedule" caused the condition that led him to hospital.
