THE Archbishop of Glasgow’s condition has “markedly improved” after he suffered a heart attack while in Spain, the Catholic Church in Scotland said.

Archbishop Philip Tartaglia was admitted to hospital in Salamanca on Thursday after feeling unwell, and tests confirmed he had suffered a heart attack.

The Archbishop, 64, is expected to leave hospital today to return to the Royal Scots College Catholic seminary in Salamanca, and hopes to return to Scotland next week.

A spokesman for Archbishop Tartaglia said: “The Archbishop’s condition has markedly improved.

“This afternoon he will leave the University Hospital of Salamanca and return to the Royal Scots College.

“It is hoped that he will be able to return to Scotland next week.

“He remains in good spirits and is now supported by his brother, Canon Gerard Tartaglia, who has travelled from Scotland to be with him.

“The Bishops are delighted at this good news”

The Scottish Bishops are currently attending an in-service week at the Scots College.
