hypertense Lula

Brazilian Prez Lula da Silva (aka Yoda) was about to board his plane to go see the other jetsetters in Davos yesterday when he succumbed to an attack of hypertension (likely brought on by overwork and job stress, say the docs). He didn't make that flight and was instead taken to a local hospital where I'm glad to say he's recovering well. Here's the photo from early this morning to prove it.

So the award of 'global statesman' that the suits at Davos were going to pin on his chest will have to wait for another day, as Lula is looking happy enough being pampered by pretty nurses.
