London: The wife of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un has made public appearances after being absent from the public eye for 50 days.

Ri Sol-ju attended a football match and a concert with her husband on Monday, the state-run media reported.

Ri watched a football match in the capital, Pyongyang, with Kim Jong-un, the report said.

According to the BBC, she was also seen attending a concert marking the 60th anniversary of the Kim Il-sung Military University with her husband.

“Marshall Kim Jong-un, the supreme leader of the party and the people, came to the spectators`` seats, accompanied by his wife Ri Sol-ju. At that moment, thunderous applause broke out,” the state-run media said.

Her absence had sparked speculation, including that she had fallen out of favour for some reason.

North Korea only confirmed Ri was Kim`s wife in July, a month after she was first seen in public with him.
