Former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi has died in court, state television reported on Monday.

It said Morsi had fainted after a court session and died afterwards.

Morsi, a top figure in the Muslim Brotherhood, was toppled by the military in 2013 after mass protests against this rule. He had been serving a seven-year sentence for falsifying his candidacy application for the 2012 presidential race. In March 2018, a panel of British politicians and lawyers warned that Morsi’s prison conditions were poor and could lead to his early death.
