Arnold Schwarzenegger underwent a surgery to replace a valve that was originally replaced 20 years ago.
A leading daily quoted Daniel Ketchell saying Schwarzenegger “is awake and his first words were actually ‘I’m back”.
Austria’s Chancellor Sebastian Kurz wished his “friend” well in a tweet, adding: “I look forward to seeing you again.”
“I came here with absolutely nothing… And California has given me absolutely everything,” said Arnold during his time as Republican governor of the famously liberal state.
A leading daily posted a video where Arnold’s close friend Sylvester Stallone is talking about him. “Some things you just can’t give up, stogies and breathing,” he said on Arnold quitting Cigars.
Let us tell you that both the actors love cigars. He also added “He’s doing great. He’s a brave man”
He has appeared in a raft of action movies including The Expendables franchise, Sabotage, Terminator Genisys and Aftermath.
The actor was voted in as governor of California in a historic 2003 recall vote – but proved the win was no fluke by defeating opponent Phil Angelides to get re-elected.
In May last year, Arnold was honored in France with the Chevalier de la Legion d’Honneur, the country’s most prestigious medal, for his environmental work.
