After more than 18 months, Jason Rezaian was released from an Iranian prison as the result of a deal struck between the US and Iran.

“I want people to know that physically I’m feeling good,” Rezaian told the Post editors on Monday.

Rezaian described how he spent 49 days in solitary confinement. He got his exercise by walking around an 8-by-8-foot concrete courtyard for five hours every day.
