Ex-Italian prime minister Berlusconi hospitalised for heart problem

MILAN- Former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, one of Italy’s richest and most polarising men, was hospitalised on Tuesday for a heart problem but his condition was not life-threatening, a spokesman said. The 79-year-old centre-right leader and media mogul, who was prime minister four times, was suffering from what Milan’s San Raffaele hospital called a “cardiac deficiency”. Berlusconi, who had a pacemaker implanted in a US hospital when he was 70, would undergo tests in the next few days to determine the proper therapy, a hospital statement said.
