Bono's rep says heart problem reports are untrue

U2's Bono has dismissed reports that his recent hospital visit was due to a heart problem and claims to be in "good health". 

The 'Elevation' superstar was taken into the Princess Grace Memorial Hospital in Monaco on Wednesday, August 17 and the Irish Independent told readers he was examined by a heart specialist.

However, a spokesperson for Bono has confirmed to the press that this was definitely not the case and the visit was just for a routine check up:

"Despite press stories to the contrary, Bono has not suffered a recent health scare. Reports of his being rushed to hospital for emergency treatment are untrue. Bono is in good health and enjoying a family holiday in the south of France."
