On Monday, Phil Read will leave the hospital in Imola where he had been hospitalized for two weeks following an illness. The British champion had been struck by a chest infection and respiratory problems while he was in Italy for the 200 Miglia di Imola.
His son, Junior, announced the news on his father's condition through social networks: "He is no longer on oxygen, and the doctors have given him permission to fly on Monday. After almost two weeks in a hospital bed he needs to start moving his legs a bit, and Roki Read is here to bully dad and make him move around some,“ he said jokingly.
This is breaking new from Graham Read: Unfortunately the situation has changed slightly, Dad is making good progress but still has Pneumonia and breathing difficulties, we have no discharge date yet and won’t be Monday.
