The elderly founder of France’s far-right National Front, Jean-Marie Le Pen, has been discharged from hospital after a short stint for a heart problem, a source close to the former party leader says.
The source says Le Pen is at home, without specifying when exactly he had been discharged after his hospitalization on Thursday just days after a bitter public spat with his daughter Marine who now heads the FN.
“It is a small heart problem, nothing serious. The beast is strong,” Le Pen told AFP on Thursday from the hospital.
A party source had linked the medical visit to stress from a highly publicized political blow-up with his daughter, saying it was related to recent “emotional shocks.”
