Former Prime Minister Bob Hawke Admitted to Hospital
Former prime minister Bob Hawke remains in Sydney's Royal North Shore Hospital, but it's unclear what he is suffering from and his condition is not known.
The 88-year-old was admitted on Monday evening and the hospital would not make any comment.
The former ALP leader served as Australia's 23rd prime minister from 1983-1991 and led Labor to four consecutive election victories.
Mr Hawke's place in the Labor pantheon was formally acknowledged in 2009 when he became only the third person to be awarded national life membership of the party.
