Berlusconi kept in hospital for heart tests - Checking to see if he has one
http://www.swissinfo.org/eng/international/ticker/detai...


MILAN (Reuters) - Silvio Berlusconi was spending the night in a hospital intensive care unit after the former Italian prime minister said he had a heart problem, adding to speculation about his political future.

Berlusconi, 70, fainted as he addressed young supporters at a rally in Tuscany on Sunday. His eyes closed and his legs gave way before aides propped him up and took him off stage to be assisted by his personal doctor.

"They found something on the electrocardiogram, something like an irregular heartbeat, so they want to keep me under observation for 24 hours," Berlusconi told reporters before he was flown by helicopter from his villa near Milan to the city's San Raffaele hospital.

"There is no emergency, no alarm," Berlusconi spokesman Paolo Bonaiuti later told Reuters, adding Berlusconi was in intensive care because his cardiologist heads that unit.
