Ex-Italian Prime Minister, Silvio Berlusconi, In Intensive Care After Heart Problems
Italian ex-prime minister Silvio Berlusconi, a dominant player in his nation’s politics for decades, was in intensive care on Wednesday for heart problems.
The 86-year-old media mogul and senator, who has been in and out of the hospital in recent years, is in Milan’s San Raffaele Hospital, a member of his entourage told AFP.
Italian news agency Ansa said he was admitted early Wednesday and that his current condition was “stable”.
Berlusconi, the billionaire leader of the right-wing Forza Italia party, spent four days last month at the same hospital for what Italian news reports called heart issues, before being discharged on March 30.
“I have already started working again… ready and determined to commit myself, as I have always done, to the country I love”, he said in a message posted on social networks on Friday.
