Former Israeli president and Noble Peace Prize winner Shimon Peres saw “real improvement” today but remained in serious condition after the 93-year-old suffered a major stroke, his doctor said.

“There is another real improvement today,” Peres’s personal physician and son-in-law Rafi Walden told AFP, describing his condition as serious but stable.

He said it was likely his condition would remain that way for the coming days.

Peres remained in intensive care and was breathing with the help of a respirator, but was still able to respond to prompts as he had the previous day.
