Berlusconi ‘not very well’: ally
Italy’s hospitalised former premier Silvio Berlusconi “is not very well”, a key political ally said yesterday while insisting the 84-year-old would bounce back. “I spoke to Berlusconi...he’s not very well but he’ll pull through, being the fighter that he is,” Matteo Salvini, leader of the far-right League party, told RAI public radio. Berlusconi has been in and out of hospital in recent months. In September, after recovering from a serious coronavirus infection, he said he had a close brush with death. He was readmitted to the San Raffaele hospital in Milan on Tuesday to treat the after-effects of Covid-19, a source with knowledge of the matter said.
