Former Australian Prime Minister John Howard has been taken to hospital.

He was taken to hospital after a visit to his GP this morning and it was not covid-19 related.

Mr Howard, who was prime minister from 1996-2007, is Australia’s oldest living former prime minister, and the second-longest serving leader after Sir Robert Menzies.

Sky News political editor Andrew Clennell said he had talked to Mr Howard, 81, and there was no cause for alarm, with the former leader saying he’s “fine” and downplaying any serious health concerns.
