King Salman of Saudi Arabia is undergoing treatment for lung inflammation at Al Salam Palace in Jeddah.

The 88-year-old monarch underwent medical tests hours earlier at the royal clinics at Al Salam Palace due to a fever and joint pain.

The King is being treated with antibiotics, according to the state news agency, Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

“The treating medical team decided to conduct some examinations to diagnose his health condition and to check on his health,” a statement to the SPA said.

He was last admitted to hospital for checkups in April.

King Salman has been King of Saudi Arabia since the death of his brother, Abdullah, in January 2015.
