Last weekend, the ex-world heavyweight champion Vitali Klitschko confidently won the mayoral elections in Kiev. According to preliminary data, in the first round he won a little more than 50% of the votes, thanks to which he retained the seat of the mayor.
With this success, Klitschko was congratulated by his friend, the legendary Hollywood actor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The mayor of Kiev announced this on his Instagram page.
“Friends, a few days ago my friend Arnie had heart surgery. They put a new aortic valve. But he is strong and a winner! He feels good. And he follows the events in Ukraine,” Klitschko wrote.
The politician posted congratulations from Schwarzenegger, which reads:
“Vitaly, congratulations. Very proud of you. All the best. Your friend Arnold.”
