Recovering from his quintuple bypass faster than expected, President Boris Yeltsin yesterday moved into a hospital where he has a suite of offices and asked for some classical music.

The Russian leader, 65, has been pushing doctors for days to move him to the Kremlin hospital, which has presidential offices and a more homely atmosphere.

Prime Minister Viktor Chernomyrdin said no one could talk him out of it: "The president's health will improve very fast now," he predicted after Mr Yeltsin left Moscow Cardiological Centre, where he underwent surgery on Tuesday.
