Fidel Castro “is very well,” Venezuelan ex-vice president Elias Jaua said Sunday, after meeting the aged revolutionary icon amid a swirl of rumors the Cuban leader was on his death bed.

The 86 year-old Castro “is very well, very lucid,” Jaua, a loyal supporter of leftist Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez, told reporters.
