Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been hospitalised at San Raffaele hospital in Milan, two months after being diagnosed with leukaemia and a lung infection.

Berlusconi, 86, who is in a relationship with 33-year-old Forza Italia MP Marta Fascina, was admitted to the hospital for medical checks, a source said. 

The billionaire media tycoon was discharged from hospital last month after treatment for a lung infection linked to a Chronic Myelomonocytic Leukaemia (CML).

Berlusconi’s health has markedly deteriorated in recent years, with open-heart surgery in 2016 and numerous hospital admissions since contracting COVID-19 three years ago.

He was admitted to intensive care in April in the cardiac unit of the San Raffaele hospital after suffering from breathing problems. While there, he was diagnosed with leukaemia and a lung infection. 

He served as prime minister in 1994-1995, 2001-2006 and 2008-2011 and although he doesn’t have a direct role in government, his Forza Italia party is a member of Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni’s right-wing coalition.
