Olmert’s brother says the former premier will spend the bulk of his 18-month jail term bulking up at the gym.

“I’m saying that I’m certain, that if in the end it happens and he ends up in prison, I’m sure he will do what is required of him,” Yirmi Olmert tells the Maariv daily. “I imagine that he will dedicate most of his time to the gym, maybe he’ll also sit down and write something.”
