PM Lee took ill midway through his National Day Rally and thankfully appears to be alright

TL;DR – Thank goodness.

If you were watching the National Day Rally on telly like me this evening, you might have noticed that midway through the English version of his speech, PM Lee Hsien Loong suddenly took ill.

The latest update is that he is currently resting (we’re guessing that he’s been overworking lately) and heaved a huge sigh of relief when DPM Teo Chee Hean says he will be back shortly to continue his speech.
