BRASILIA (Reuters) - Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro, currently in hospital following surgery this week, hopes to resume presidential duties on Friday, his spokesman Otavio Rego Barros said on Thursday.

Bolsonaro is still planning to attend the United Nations General Assembly in New York later this month, Barros said, while a medical bulletin released by the Sao Paulo hospital where Bolsonaro is being treated said his recovery was progressing “favorably”.
