Doctors have confirmed that US Senator Bernie Sanders suffered a heart attack three days ago, as they announced that he had been released from hospital in Las Vegas.

“Sen. Sanders was diagnosed with a myocardial infarction,” his doctors said in the statement on Friday, using the medical term for a heart attack.

“Two stents were placed in a blocked coronary artery in a timely fashion. All other arteries were normal. His hospital course was uneventful with good expected progress.”
