Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos was released from hospital Saturday, three days after he was operated to have a tumor removed from his prostate.
“I am completely healed,” said Santos when leaving the Bogota hospital where he had been operated.
According to Santos, the cancer that was found in his prostate had not metastasized
The President, who had taken up almost immediately after the operation on Wednesday morning, will continue his recuperation at the presidential palace.
