Saudi Arabia’s King Salman has left the hospital one week after being admitted for tests, including a colonoscopy, state media reported.

Video broadcast by the official Saudi Press Agency (SPA) late on Sunday showed the 86-year-old monarch walking out of King Faisal Specialist Hospital in the coastal city of Jeddah, using a cane and surrounded by officials, including Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman before being driven away.

He left “after conducting medical examinations and successfully completing the treatment plan and recovery period,” the SPA said on Twitter.

President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed Bin Zayed Al Nahyan has sent a message of congratulations to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, after he was discharged from King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Jeddah following successful medical tests.

His Highness Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, dispatched a similar message to the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques.

The UAE leaders prayed to the Almighty Allah to grant King Salman good health and longevity, wishing Saudi Arabia and its people further progress, prosperity, security and peace under King Salman’s leadership.

Sharjah Ruler His Highness Dr. Sheikh Sultan Bin Muhammad Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member has congratulated the Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques, King Salman Bin Abdulaziz of Saudi Arabia, after he was discharged from King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Jeddah following successful medical tests.

Ras Al Khaimah Ruler His Highness Sheikh Saud Bin Saqr Al Qasimi, Supreme Council Member, has sent a message of congratulations to the Custodian of the King Salman after he was discharged from King Faisal Specialist Hospital in Jeddah following successful medical tests.

Sheikh Saud prayed to the Almighty Allah to grant King Salman good health and long life, wishing Saudi Arabia and its people further progress, prosperity, security and peace under King Salman’s leadership.

A week ago, state media reported that the King’s colonoscopy results were “sound” and that doctors had “decided to keep him in the hospital for some time to rest.”

King Salman underwent surgery to remove his gall bladder in 2020.

Before this latest hospitalisation, he was most recently admitted in March for what state media described as “successful medical tests” and to change the battery of his pacemaker.

Under his rule, Saudi Arabia has launched ambitious economic reforms for a post-oil era and given more rights to women, while adopting a more assertive foreign policy.
