Silvio Berlusconi: Italy ex-PM appears by video after serious illness


Italy's former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has told supporters he's ready to go back to work after a month in hospital.

The 86-year-old, who is suffering from leukaemia, was rushed into intensive care with a related lung infection but his condition has since stabilised.[BBC]

There has been no word on when he might leave hospital.

In a video address from his room, Mr Berlusconi thanked his Forza Italia party members for their support.

"I never stopped, not even in the past few weeks," he said in the pre-recorded message, in which he appeared smartly dressed in a suit.

"I worked on the party's new structure and I'm ready to return to work with you and fight alongside you our fights for freedom."
