Bill Clinton 'in good spirits' after heart surgery

Former US president Bill Clinton is expected to leave hospital today after undergoing a heart operation to open up a clogged coronary artery.

Doctors cleared the blockage in a New York hospital after he suffered several days of "discomfort" in his chest following an aid mission to Haiti.

The 63-year-old was in "good spirits" and walking about his room following the one-hour operation, his specialist says.

"He is back on his feet. I told him he could be back in his office on Monday," he adds.
