SAO PAULO (Reuters) – Brazil’s right-wing President Jair Bolsonaro was discharged from hospital on Tuesday, having spent the night under observation after falling at his official residence in the capital Brasilia, his office said in a statement.

Bolsonaro, 64, was given a brain scan at the hospital that detected no abnormalities, the president’s office said on Monday shortly after the fall.

The president’s health has been cause for concern after he was stabbed on the campaign trail in late 2018, requiring him to undergo several surgeries and spend two extended stints in hospital this year.
