Vice President Jejomar Binay on Wednesday maintained that he is in good health to finish the 90-day campaign for the May 2016 elections.

In an ambush interview after a program in San Pedro, Laguna, Binay said he just had an annual physical exam with the doctor purportedly telling him he is in good health.

“Laki naman ako sa hirap. ‘Yung mga iba dyan, tumanda na saka sila nakapag-isip mag-exercise,” Binay said.

(I grew up poor. The others, on the other hand, only started exercising when they were already old.)

“Katatapos lang annual medical exam ko. Napakaganda, sabi nga ng doctor baka gusto ko na uli mag-badminton,” he added.

(I have just finished my annual medical exam. The results were good. The doctor even asked me if I wanted to play badminton again.)
