Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, 86, left a Milan hospital on Friday where he had been hospitalized for six weeks with a lung infection and leukaemia, an AFP photographer at the scene said.
Berlusconi got into a car with tinted windows and left the San Raffaele hospital in the capital of Lombardy at around 1:15 pm (08:15 GMT), where he was admitted on April 5.
He was admitted to the prestigious hospital to treat problems related to a lung infection, but his doctors revealed that he was suffering from chronic leukemia.
In May, he spoke to supporters in a video message from his hospital room, sitting behind a desk with the party sash and Italian flag behind him.
Berlusconi has been hospitalized several times in recent years, mainly after contracting covid-19 in 2020.
His political career is related to the Italian history of the last 30 years, in which he was Prime Minister in three terms, between 1994 and 2011. Berlusconi bought the Milan in 1986 and turned the Rossoneri club into a world power.
He is currently a senator and president of ‘Forza Italia’, a right-wing party and a partner in the coalition government of far-right Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni.
