Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, 66, received a clean bill of health on Sunday after undergoing an annual battery of medical tests.

The Prime Minister's Office issued a statement saying that Netanyahu underwent a series of comprehensive lab tests which all came back normal. In addition, he underwent heart and lung; urological; ear, nose and throat; and gastrointestinal tests. A polyp was discovered and removed from his large intestine.

The tests were carried out by his personal physician, Tzvi Herman Berkovich, who declared that Netanyahu's overall state of health was “excellent.”
