Turkish president Recep Tayyip Erdogan was forced to deny rumors about the situation of his health that wanted him to have suffered an epilepsy or stroke crisis.

“I’m here and I’m standing full of health. Some spread the false news that I had a heart attack. I have no words to describe this sick mentality”, said the Turkish president.

These rumors had begun to circulate during his US trip last week, after his speech at the Brookings Institute. Some of the journalists had uploaded the news on Facebook, saying that Erdogan had suffered an epilepsy seizure. The rumors were disproved by the Turkish president himself in his speech in Ankara.
