Berlusconi Injured By Blair in Soccer Match, Repubblica Says
Aug. 28 (Bloomberg) -- Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi underwent medical tests Thursday for pains in his left leg following a soccer match with U.K. premier Tony Blair, daily la Repubblica reported without saying how it got the information.
During Blair's visit ten days ago at Berlusconi's villa Certosa on the Italian island of Sardinia, the U.K. premier hit Berlusconi's left leg with his knee, the newspaper reported. Berlusconi had the leg checked Thursday at a hospital in Olbia.
``You know, it's always the left that gives me problems,'' Repubblica cited Berlusconi as saying during the hospital visit. Berlusconi heads a center-right coalition government.
Telephone calls to Berlusconi's press office were not answered.
