Federal Opposition Leader Anthony Albanese has been discharged from hospital, a day after he was admitted following a car accident.
The 57-year-old was hospitalised on Friday following the incident in Marrickville in Sydney’s inner west.
The politician spoke to reporters on Saturday, saying he’d suffered both external and internal injuries.
The two-car crash took place on Hill Street on Friday afternoon.
At the time, a spokesperson for Albanese told 7NEWS.com.au he was “heavily shaken” but “okay”.
Albanese was treated at the scene before he was taken to Royal Prince Alfred Hospital for precautionary X-rays.
Albanese announced to reporters that the driver of the other car had been given an infringement notice for negligent driving, following the accident.
“I hope this incident results in this young man becoming one of the safest drivers Australia has ever seen,” he said.
The politician said the 17-year-old man had also apologised.
Albanese also thanked hospital staff and police for their help during the ordeal.
“Will be discharged from Royal Prince Alfred Hospital this afternoon and continue treatment as an outpatient- thank you for all the good wishes and a huge thanks to the paramedics, police, doctors, nurses, orderlies, radiographers and other hospital staff – you are the best,” he tweeted.
