The chief of the Hellenic National Defense General Staff (GEETHA), Admiral Evangelos Apostolakis, is to remain under medical observation for the next two weeks following his admission to a military hospital last week for tests. 

The armed forces chief was admitted to the hospital last Thursday after complaining of feeling unwell.

A team of doctors decided late on Sunday that he should remain in the hospital for another 15 days.

In a statement, GEETHA said Apostolakis would be replaced by his deputy Lieutenant-General Constantinos Floros during his recovery.
