Last month, the 77-year-old politician was also hospitalised, with media speculating that his health was in a rapid decline. However, PM Babis denied those rumours, citing Zeman's attending physician.
Czech President Milos Zeman has been admitted to Prague's Central Military Hospital, media reported on Sunday, citing a spokeswoman for the facility.

"Right after a meeting between President Milos Zeman and Prime Minister Andrei Babis, an ambulance car from the UVN [Central Military Hospital] drove out of the president's country residence, accompanied by a presidential car. Later, the press service for the UVN announced Zeman's hospitalisation", CNN Prima News reported.

Later in the day, Zeman's doctor confirmed that the politician was taken to an intensive care unit.

"At the moment, the patient is hospitalised at an intensive care unit of Prague's Military University Hospital", Zeman's doctor Miroslav Zavoral said.

The president has been suffering from diabetic neuropathy in his feet. Zeman has had trouble walking due to this condition, so he has recently been using a wheelchair.
Zeman has been president of the Czech Republic since March 2013 and is now on his second term as head of state. He is also the founder and honorary chairman of the Party of Civic Rights, also known as Zeman's People.
