Bulgarian Prime Minister Boyko Borisov, who resigned last week, has been advised to remain in hospital, according to Lozenets hospital director Lyubomir Spasov.
"His blood pressure values are yet to be normalized," Spasov has told the Bulgarian National Radio.
According to the medic, the Bulgarian Prime Minister has myocardial hypertrophy. Spasov stated that Borisov's condition is due to too much sports training over the years.
Meanwhile, local media informed that Borisov talked with German Chancellor Angela Merkel over the phone from hospital. He briefed her about the current political situation in his country.
Borisov has checked in the hospital 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.
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.
