US TV show host Larry King has been diagnosed with COVID-19, according to reports.
King has reportedly been hospitalised in LA, where his family are unable to visit him due to California's COVID-19 restrictions.
The 87-year-old is best known for his guest interview show on CNN, Larry King Live, which ran from 1985 to 2010.
King has experienced various medical issues over the years, including a heart attack, prostate and lung cancer, and type two diabetes. King lives in Beverly Hills, California, which has seen a surge in coronavirus cases.
On Thursday (local time), California became the third state in the US to surpass 25,000 COVID-19 deaths, with hospitals overwhelmed and funeral homes filled to capacity.
Doctors and nurses are facilitating communication between King and his wife, Shawn King, 61, and two sons, Chance, 21 and Cannon, 20.
Although King and his wife are in the process of divorcing, the pair are said to be on good terms after 23 years of marriage, according to the Daily Mail.
King has had a complex and public love life, marrying eight times to seven women and fathering five children.
