Veteran talk show host Larry King has been hospitalised with Covid-19, US media reported. Citing a “source close to the family”, CNN reported that King, one of the network’s biggest stars, has been hospitalised for more than a week at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. King, 87, has Type 2 diabetes and has had a long history of medical issues, including several heart attacks, lung cancer and angina, a condition caused by reduced blood flow to the heart. The legendary host is one of the most recognisable figures on US television, known for his signature rolled-up shirtsleeves, multi-coloured ties, suspenders and big glasses. King hosted CNN’s “Larry King Live” for 25 years, retiring in 2010.
