Russian opposition figure Alexei Navalny is unconscious in hospital with suspected poisoning, his spokeswoman has said.

The anti-corruption campaigner fell ill during a flight and the plane made an emergency landing in Omsk, Kira Yarmysh said, adding that they suspected something had been mixed into his tea.

Mr Navalny, 44, is a staunch critic of President Vladimir Putin.

Video shows the unconscious Navalny being stretchered from the aircraft into a waiting ambulance before being rushed to intensive care.

The 44-year-old was pictured drinking the tea at the Vienna Cafe at Tomsk Airport.

He is said to be in grave condition.

Medics have given a preliminary diagnosis of ‘toxic poisoning’, but no test results have yet come back.
