Italian politician Silvio Berlusconi was taken to a Milan hospital, reports the newspaper Corriere della Sera

The leader of the Forward Italy party fell and was injured. This happened after he tried to take a selfie at the summit of the European People’s Party (EPP) in Croatian Zagreb. The politician was taken to a Milan hospital for inspection: he received a bruise and a hematoma. He has no other serious injuries.

The politician will be left in the hospital for the weekend. “Yes, this is a banal bruise. But, you know, even a butterfly’s flight in China causes a whole hurricane in Texas, ”the representative of the Forward Italy party commented on the situation.

He also added that after the inspection, Berlusconi still returned to the EPP summit in accordance with his schedule.

Silvio Berlusconi served as Prime Minister of Italy in 1994-1995, 2001-2006 and 2008-2011. In 2010, an investigation was opened against him on the “Ruby case”, in which the prime minister was accused of sexual relations with a minor. In 2015, the court acquitted Berlusconi, but this case cost him the post of head of government.
