BERLIN, March 2 (RIA Novosti, Olga Semenova) - Former Russian leader Boris Yeltsin has had a check-up at a German heart center, the clinic said Thursday.

"Yeltsin comes in for a check-up with Professor Roland Hetzer every year, following the 1996 operation on his aorta," a clinic representative said. He added that the results could not be disclosed, citing professional ethics.

"For his age, and taking into account his heart's workload, Yeltsin looks good. You should ask him how he feels, though."

Health problems dogged Yelstin throughout his second term in office, and he underwent major heart surgery in 1996. The former president celebrated his 75 birthday in February.
