BREAKING: Former Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe is expected to leave hospital today after surviving a vicious attack on 8 July 2022. Spokesperson for the Abe family says he is in “good spirits” and is determined to leave the hospital on his own two feet. “He has shown true grace under pressure, smiling throughout his ordeal. The nurses are certainly going to miss his good humour!” said the spokesperson.

Abe made the news last Wednesday after a crazed gunman fired an improvised device at the former Prime Minister’s back, inflicting a non-fatal wound. Well wishers from across the world immediately took to twitter to share their concerns for the Abe, including Barak Obama, David Cameron, Celine Dion, and his former chat show co-host Jamie Vardy.

A Tokyo General Hospital spokesman was not available for comment.
