'Shows good health' says ex-premier24 January, 13:36
Berlusconi played down the fuss the remark made after Obama's first inauguration four years ago.
"Sun-tanned was a compliment. I would have liked to have his colour, which shows good health," said the centre-right leader, who is running for a fourth term as premier in February 24-25 elections.
