Former President Maumoon Abdul Gayoom has returned home after being admitted in IGMH for medical tests.

He was admitted in IGMH two days ago to conduct medical tests for a prolonged cold he was suffering from. It is reported that the former President had been ill for a few days before he was taken to hospital.

President Maumoon confirmed that he was well in a tweet sent out today. The former President, a respected figure by many in the country tweeted that he had recovered from the infection and thanked IGMH staff who attended him for their professionalism.

Last Sunday was the 82nd birthday of the former President. He is known to be health-conscious and is a regular exerciser.
