CARACAS - Venezuela's President Hugo Chavez on Thursday mocked a US media report that he had been rushed to a hospital with kidney failure linked to the socialist leader's ongoing treatment for cancer.

"I'm fine, here having my first coffee of the day," a sprightly sounding Chavez, 57, said in one of his regular, lengthy dawn telephone calls to state TV.

"Those who don't love me and want me ill, well bad luck," he added.
