US Defence Secretary Lloyd Austin has cancelled an overseas trip to a Nato meeting after being admitted to hospital for the third time in as many months.

Mr Austin, 70, was taken to a critical care unit at a military hospital in the Washington DC suburbs on Sunday.

The Pentagon has said he is facing an “emergent bladder issue”.

He was slammed for the secrecy cloaking his hospital admissions in December and January as he fights prostate cancer.

Mr Austin had been due to attend meetings with Nato defence chiefs in Brussels, Belgium, this week.
