SAO PAULO (Reuters) - The condition of Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is improving, though it is not yet known if he will need surgery for an intestinal blockage, the hospital where he has been admitted said in a Monday evening statement.

Bolsonaro walked briefly in a hallway, and he is not presenting signs of fever or abdominal pain, the statement said.
