Ismail Sabri, in an SUV accompanied by a group of police outriders, wound down his window and waved to reporters when he arrived at 5.38pm on Saturday (Jan 22). He left at about 6.05pm.

"I'm hoping for the family of Dr Mahathir to continue staying strong," he said in a tweet on Saturday evening.

He also posted a picture showing Tun Dr Siti Hasmah Mohamad Ali and an individual believed to be his eldest son, Tan Sri Mokhzani Mahathir.

"I'm hoping for the family of Dr Mahathir to continue staying strong," he tweeted.

Media personnel have been gathering at IJN since Saturday afternoon following talk that the former prime minister had been readmitted.

According to a spokesperson from the Langkawi MP’s office, Dr Mahathir is currently in the coronary care unit (CCU).
