SAO PAULO (Reuters) - Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro's medical condition is improving, he has no fever and is quickly overcoming a bout of pneumonia, his spokesman said on Friday.

A nasogastric tube and another tube draining liquid that accumulated where his colostomy bag had been attached to his intestine have been removed, according to a medical bulletin issued by the Sao Paulo hospital where he is being treated. Bolsonaro, who was stabbed during the election campaign in September, ate chicken broth and jelly.
