“I can confirm the prime minister is hospitalised for cardiovascular examination in the national institute,” NÚSCH spokeswoman Dobroslava Krajačičová said, as quoted by Denník N.

NÚSCH declined to comment on the reasons for Fico’s hospitalisation, but as the The Slovak Spectator went to print Fico was set to stay overnight.
