Chief Minister Howard Quayle has left hospital after suffering a stroke on Friday.
Mr Quayle is said to be making good progress and is comfortable at home, where he looks forward to continuing his recovery.
The Chief said: ‘The past few days have been a challenging time for me and my family. We feel fortunate that I’ve been able to return home so quickly. I am hugely grateful for the care I received from the highly professional Manx Care team while in Noble’s Hospital. I wish to thank everyone who has sent me their kind messages of support – the number has been overwhelming, and each one has been a source of great strength.’
A gov spokesman said the Chief remains in contact with ministers and senior officials, and the business of government is continuing as normal.
