Tehran, Oct 27 (DPA) Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has denied reports that he was sick, saying he had just caught a cold and been a bit tired.”Like anybody else I might catch a cold, get tired sometimes but I am not (seriously) sick,” Ahmadinejad said on state television Sunday night.
There had been reports that Ahmadinejad suffered from low blood pressure and needed medical care.
Some reports even speculated that he might not run in next June’s presidential elections due to chronic exhaustion.
On Sunday morning the 52-year-old Ahmadinejad received in the presidential office three new ambassadors and then met later in the afternoon with provincial governors.
