Riyadh, May 19 (IANS): King Salman is suffering from "high fever and joint pain" and will undergo a medical examination on Sunday, the Saudi Arabian court said.

"The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques will undergo medical examinations today, May 19, at the Royal Clinics of Al-Salam Palace in Jeddah due to a high fever and joint pain. The medical team will conduct tests to diagnose his condition and monitor his health," the royal court said in a statement, the Saudi Press Agency reported.
