June 12, 2023

Former Italian prime minister and AC Milan owner Silvio Berlusconi has died aged 86.

The world-famous politician, who was the owner of Serie A side Monza before his death, had been in hospital battling illness.

He died in the San Raffaele hospital in Milan where he was being treated for a lung infection linked to leukaemia according to Italian media reports.

Berlusconi led four Italian governments from 1994 to 2011 and had recently returned to top level politics when his Forza Italia party entered coalition with now-prime minister Georgia Meloni.

He is best known among football fans for his 31-year ownership of Serie A giants Milan which ended in 2017.

After taking over the team in 1986, Milan won three Champions Leagues, eight Serie A titles and a Coppa Italia.
