Saudi Arabia’s King Salman bin Abdulaziz will stay in hospital for some time to rest on doctors’ advice after undergoing colonoscopy on Sunday, the Saudi Press Agency said, citing the royal court.

It said the results of the colonoscopy were fine, and did not say exactly how long the king would be in hospital.

The king was admitted to King Faisal Specialist Hos­pital, in Jeddah, on Saturday to undergo medical tests.

The king, 86, underwent gallbladder surgery in 2020 and had the battery of his heart pacemaker replaced in March.

King Salman became ruler of the world’s top oil exporter in 2015 after spending more than two years as crown prince and deputy premier.
