Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who underwent abdominal surgery over the weekend, was given permission by his doctors on Monday to start physical therapy and go on a liquid diet, thanks to the progress being made in the post-operative process.

On Sunday, Bolsonaro underwent his fourth operation since being stabbed during a campaign rally in 2018 and doctors are continuing to restrict his visitors, Sao Paulo's Hospital Vila Nova Star said in a statement.
