(Reuters) – Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was taken to hospital on Monday after feeling “discomfort”, UOL news portal reported.

It said the president was taken to the Army Hospital in Brasilia for tests. The report was not confirmed by Reuters.

Bolsonaro was hospitalized in January for an intestinal obstruction that was cleared and he did not need surgery. The blockage was his latest complication from a stabbing at a campaign stop in 2018.
