Egypt’s former President Mohamed Morsi has died after appearing in court, according to state media.

State TV on Monday reported that Morsi fainted after a court session and died afterwards.

“He was speaking before the judge for 20 minutes then became very animated and fainted. He was quickly rushed to the hospital where he later died,” a judicial source said.

Morsi, 67, became Egypt’s first democratically elected president in 2012 after the 2011 Arab Spring saw the end of President Hosni Mubarak’s 30-year rule.

He was then deposed following mass protests and a military coup in July 2013.

He served just one year of a four-year term, while the organisation to which he belonged, the Muslim Brotherhood, has since been outlawed.
