President Vaclav Klaus has been admitted to hospital in Prague. Mr Klaus, who is 62, had been receiving treatment at home for tonsillitis, but was brought to the city's General Teaching Hospital on Tuesday morning when he said pains in his joints were getting worse. A spokesman said the president would undergo a comprehensive check-up. Mr Klaus has cancelled his schedule for the rest of this week, meaning the appointment of new judges to the Constitutional Court and other official duties have had to be postponed.
