GENEVA, November 12 – Suspended FIFA boss Sepp Blatter has left hospital and returned home after being admitted over a stress-related medical incident, his spokesman said on Thursday.

Spokesman Klaus Stoehlker said the scandal-tainted Blatter was picked up from the hospital by his daughter Corinne late on Wednesday and taken back to his home in Switzerland’s Valais region.

On Wednesday, the spokesman confirmed that the long-serving FIFA leader had been in the hospital for several days with a condition that was not considered serious.

Stoehlker reiterated that position on Thursday, insisting that Blatter’s “condition is really good.”

“He will be back at his private office in Zurich on Tuesday,” the spokesman said.
