UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash said on Tuesday that the Sweden talks are a "critical opportunity". Rebel official Abdel Kader al-Murtadha confirmed the deal, adding that he hoped it would be "implemented without problem".

"His condition requires mechanical respiratory support, deep sedation and specialized neurological monitoring".

The Hôpital de l'Enfant-Jésus has not issued any update on Stevenson's condition since Monday afternoon, when it said he was in an induced coma. "I urge the media to be very cautious about distributing medical information that does not come from an official medical source". "As agreed with Mr. Stevenson's family, please note that no further comments will be made".

Earlier on Sunday, Michel tweeted his thanks on behalf of Stevenson's wife and family: "Thank you for your many messages of encouragement and support".

The forty-one-year-old was ahead on the scorecards heading into the bout's final stretch but slumped into the corner of the ring after being caught by a barrage of punches from the challenger. He was able to eventually get to his feet and sit down on a stool to be examined by the ringside doctor and appeared alert until his condition deteriorated.
