A new picture of Fidel Castro has been published in a state-run newspaper, apparently showing Cuba's ailing former leader in much better health.
Castro, 83, was dressed more smartly than in other recent photos, wearing a white shirt rather than a tracksuit, the BBC reported.
Later he appeared on television for the first time in 14 months, chatting to Venezuelan students, in a meeting which reportedly took place on Saturday.
He has not been seen in public since undergoing an operation in 2006.
Castro stepped down and his younger brother, Raul, took over his various offices.
Since then he has undergone a series of major intestinal operations, although the state of his health and whereabouts remain state secrets.
