Hugo Chavez in hospital 'for kidney failure' - well, not according to Hugo

Hugo Chavez denies media reports of health emergency

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has denied US media reports that he was rushed to hospital with kidney failure linked to his cancer treatment.

"I'm fine, I'm having my first coffee of the day," Mr Chavez, 57, told state TV by telephone.

Mr Chavez, who had a fourth and final round of chemotherapy last week, urged Venezuelans to ignore such rumours.
