Argentine president to resume duties after brain injury

Doctors have given Cristina Fernández de Kirchner medical clearance to return to work after surgery to remove a blood clot on her brain.

The Argentine president is expected to resume official duties today (Monday), but will not be able to fly for another month and will undergo further tests next month.  Ms Fernández suffered a “skull trauma” in August, and in October, clinical staff discovered a subdural haematoma (a bleed between the brain and the skull).

Perhaps best known in the UK for her demand that Britain returns the Falkland Islands to Argentina, Ms Fernandez received messages of support from all over the world throughout her illness.
