Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Sunday underwent a routine health check-up, ahead of his visit to the US next week, and doctors said he is absolutely fine.
The check up was conducted by a team of four doctors led by Dr Srinath Reddy, chief of the Prime Minister's treatment committee, three days prior to his visit to the US to attend the G-20 Summit.
The 76-year-old Prime Minister underwent a routine health checkup and he is absolutely fine, said Dr Reddy.
The team of doctors included Dr Ramakant Panda, the surgeon who conducted the heart operation on the Prime Minister in January.
After the checkup, Dr Panda said the Prime Minister "is in the pink of his health", according to official sources.
He needs just one check-up every year as he is religiously following his diet as prescribed by the doctors and also exercising regularly, they said.
Singh will be heading the Indian delegation for the G-20 Summit to be held from September 24-25 in Pittsburg in the US.
The Prime Minister had undergone a redo by-pass surgery here in January this year which was conducted by a joint team of Mumbai's Asian Heart Institute (AHI) and AIIMS doctors led by Dr Panda.
