Zimbabwe's ousted President Robert Mugabe has been spotted in public for the first time since he was deposed in a military coup, the AFP news agency reports.
The 93-year-old leader was photographed as he left a hospital in Singapore:
The report says that Mr Mugabe walked quickly out of the building before he and his party of eight people were driven off in two cars.
His ex-spokesman, George Charamba, said on Thursday that Mr Mugabe was visiting Singapore for a routine medical check-up.
He added that the visit was "part of his package as a retired president to travel overseas".
