Shas spiritual rabbi and former Chief Sephardi Rabbi Ovadia Yosef was released from Hadassah Ein Kerem Hospital in Jerusalem Monday after having been rushed there the night before when he lost consciousness at home.

Doctors said he is good condition and did not suffer a broken leg, as was first feared when he fell at his Jerusalem home and complained of pains in his leg. He suffered cruises and some scratches.
