Malaysia’s veteran former prime minister Mahathir Mohamad, who has been picked to lead an opposition bid for election victory, has been admitted to hospital with a chest infection, authorities said on Saturday (Feb 10). He was admitted on Friday night and will stay for several days for treatment and observation, the hospital said.
His eldest daughter, Marina Mahathir, tweeted a photograph of her with her father that was taken in hospital. They were seated on a sofa smiling for the camera.
“Went to visit dad this morning. He’s good, just needs some rest. He’ll soon be back to kick some butts again soon,” she wrote.
