King Harald V of Norway had a temporary pacemaker fitted earlier today.

He underwent the procedure earlier today at Hospital Sultanah Maliha in Langkawi due to a low heart rate. The procedure was successful.

A statement from the Norwegian Royal House reads, “The pacemaker was implanted due to a low heart rate. The decision was made earlier today, and the procedure was successful. His Majesty is doing well under the circumstances but still requires rest. The procedure will make the return back home safer, according to His Majesty The King’s personal physician, Bjørn Bendz. The medical transportation to Norway is likely to take place within the next couple of days.”
