Donald Trump, 73, is the oldest person to be sworn in for his first term as president and his state of health has attracted much attention since then. He was reportedly “rushed” to hospital with an unscheduled medical test which sparked fears regarding his current health back in November.

The White House confirmed he underwent an exam on Saturday at Walter Reed Medical Centre in Washington.
The unscheduled visit comes 10 months after an annual exam found him “in very good health,” however the full details of the result have not been released.
In a statement, White House Press Secretary, Stephanie Grisham, said the latest tests were prompted by a “free weekend” in the president’s diary and that Mr Trump remained healthy and energetic without complaints.
She tweeted: “Further speculation beyond the extensive and honest information I put out is wholly irresponsible and dangerous for the country.
“Donald has visited the Walter Reed Medical Centre nine times since taking office.”
No set template is in place for the president’s physical examination but his last two visits were both announced ahead of time and noted in his public diary.
During Mr Trump’s campaign he produced a letter that said he would the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”.
However the doctor named as its author later said that Mr Trump had, in fact, written the letter himself.

In a statement shared on Twitter last month, Mr Trump’s physician said that they “will continue to monitor the president’s health, planning a more comprehensive examination after the New Year.”
The physician explained that the president’s examinations was part of a “routine, planned interim checkup” which was part of the “regular, primary preventative care he receives throughout the year”.
Mr Trump had said himself that he is in “very good” health after completing “phase one” of his physical examination.
His physician added: “Despite some of the speculation, the president has not had any chest pain, nor was he evaluated or treated for any urgent or acute issues.
“Primary preventative medical care is something that occurs continuously throughout the year, it is not just a single annual event.”
