Outgoing Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov has been discharged from hospital, according to local media.

Doctors have told Borisov to avoid stress and physical exertion, according to the Bulgarian National TV.

Borisov, 53, was admitted to the Lozenets hospital in Sofa around 5 pm Monday with a hypertensive crisis. He had a blood pressure of 190/110.

Doctors put him on medications to normalize his blood pressure and advised him to stay in the hospital for a couple of days so that they can monitor his condition.

Doctors also asked the outgoing PM to refrain from sports activities for several days as it is known that he is an avid amateur football player.

It was made clear that Borisov has myocardial hypertrophy, a result from too much sports training over the years.

Borisov and his GERB government resigned last week amidst mass protest rallies against unbearable utility bills and wide-spread poverty that turned into a civil unrest against the political model of ruling the country.
