Arnold Schwarzenegger was rushed into surgery for an emergency heart operation at the age of 70.

The actor and former California governor was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital in LA on Thursday for a catheter valve replacement – but developed complications while he was there.

The Terminator star is still recovering in hospital but is said to be in a stable condition.

It comes months after the star schooled Donald Trump in how to condemn Nazis after the white supremacist marches in Charlottesville, Virginia last August.

Trump drew criticism for claiming there was blame on “both sides” of the clashes, suggesting there were “fine people” among the neo-Nazis and suggesting equivalence with the anti-fascist counter-protest.

“There are not two sides to bigotry. There are not two sides to hatred. And if you choose to march with a flag that symbolizes the slaughter of millions of people, there are not two sides.

“The only way to beat the loud, angry voices of hate is to meet them with louder, more reasonable voices.

“And that includes you, President Trump.”
