Italy’s former prime minister Silvio Berlusconi has gone to hospital for an examination, a spokesperson for his party Forza Italia said on Wednesday. The 84-year-old apparently went to the San Raffaele hospital for routine examinations but no further details were known. “He will be discharged soon,” the spokesperson said. According to Berlusconi’s lawyer, he has been in hospital since Monday. In mid-February he also had to go to hospital after a fall, and in January he was examined due to heart problems.
