Michel’s office said Tuesday that his hearing was badly affected when the princess shot the gun for Sunday’s Brussels 20K race with the prime minister standing next to her. The prime minister was seen grimacing in pain just after the shot went off.

Michel has kept his major appointments, but had to make room in his calendar for medical care. It’s unclear how long he will need to be treated.
