I wake up my wife... Oh boy

Warsaw - Poland's former president and Nobel peace laureate Lech Walesa says he's feeling frisky just weeks after having had a pacemaker implanted in his heart.

"Now I'm feeling more energetic," Walesa, 64, told the PAP news agency on Wednesday.

"When I wake up in the morning - even when I wake up at midnight - I want to go to work, I wake up my wife...Oh boy," said the father of eight.

"I feel like I'm 18. I asked my wife if she feels it too. She agrees, so it's great," he added.

Walesa was discharged on March 4 from the Debakey Heart and Vascular Centre in Houston, Texas, four days after doctors fitted him with a bi-ventricular defibrillator pacemaker to improve his heart function.

The former shipyard electrician rose to global fame in 1980 when he helped lead a massive strike by workers at the Gdansk shipyard in northern Poland, creating the first free trade union in the communist bloc, Solidarity.

He won the Nobel peace prize in 1983 for his part in founding Solidarity, credited with paving the way to the peaceful end of communism in Poland.

In 1990, he became Poland's first post-communist democratically elected president, and served one five-year term.

Walesa is also famous for his handlebar moustache and a cheeky sense of humour.
