Nobel Prize-winning Colombian author Gabriel Garcia Marquez has recovered from pneumonia but his condition remains "delicate", Colombia's President Juan Manuel Santos said on Wednesday. Garcia Marquez, who was hospitalized for nine days in Mexico City for dehydration and a lung and urinary infection, has been receiving treatment at his home since being released last week. "What they told me is that he had pneumonia, he has got over that, he remains in delicate health which is a reality of his age," Santos told reporters after speaking to a member of Garcia Marquez's family.

Finland's postal service will honour "Tom of Finland" with stamps taken from his work - homoerotic drawings of muscular men wearing tight, black leather uniforms, when they wear anything at all. The stamps, which will be issued in September, are based on the drawings of Touko Laaksonen, better known by the pseudonym "Tom of Finland," who split his time between Finland and California. "Tom of Finland is considered one of the most well-known Finnish artists around the world," Finnish postal service Itella said in a statement issued this week regarding Laaksonen, who died in 1991. "His emphatically masculine homoerotic drawings have attained iconic status in their genre and had an influence on, for instance, pop culture and fashion." Graphic artist Timo Berry, who designed the sheet of three stamps, said they portray a sensual life force and being proud of oneself. More »A gay artist will get his images on stamps in Finland
