Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu's Office releases a statement Sunday, his 63rd birthday, commenting on the results of his annual check-up.

The PMO said that following routine tests, including a physical examination and lab tests, Netanyahu's personal physician Dr. Zvi Herman-Berkowitz termed the PM's health "excellent."

"The prime minister maintains a healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet," the statement said. "The prime minister is recovering from a torn tendon, and was advised to continue physical therapy, along with a gradual return to working out in the gym."

Annual public reports on the prime minister's health were instituted by Prime Minister Ehud Olmert following the strokes that incapacitated Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in 2005 and 2006. At the time there was criticism that the public was not made aware on a regular basis of the prime minister's health condition.
