    Israeli President Peres collapses


    Shimon Peres became president in 2007

    Israeli President Shimon Peres collapsed during a ceremony in Tel Aviv and briefly lost consciousness.

    Haaretz newspaper said the 86-year-old collapsed at the lectern during a conference and was treated by medics at the scene.

    He first refused to go to hospital but was later taken, a spokeswoman said.
    Mr Peres was appointed president in 2007 for a seven-year term, having held numerous cabinet posts including that of prime minister since the 1970s.

    He is expected to be kept in hospital overnight for observation, Dr Ari Shamis at Tel Hashomer hospital told Channel 10 TV, according to Associated Press.

    His personal doctor Rafi Valdan told the Ynet news website: "He feels well and the incident is over," adding that he expected him to return to work on Sunday.

    Hot and dizzy

    He said heat could have played a part in the persident's collapse.
    "It was simply very hot and he stood up for a long time and felt dizzy. He fainted for a few seconds.

    "At this time he feels fine, he's smiling, and he's on the phone with the whole world," Dr Valdan said.

    In June Mr Peres was tested for swine flu after receiving a group of young people from abroad who were later found to be infected.

    Despite shaking the hands and hugging about 120 of the young people, Mr Peres was cleared of any infection.

    Mr Peres was born in Poland in 1923.

    Life expectancy ya Israel pengine is more than that 86 pia anaheshimika sana kumbuka six days war akiwa kinara wa vita. Israeli wanaamini kuwandilo kundi laweza kuwavusha ktk balaa nyingi.
