Wozniak, who left Apple in 1985, was attending a World Business Forum event in Mexico City’s Santa Fe neighbourhood on Wednesday afternoon.

Wozniak informed his wife he was “feeling strange” after his speech, and she became concerned after hearing his symptoms.

He initially refused to go to the hospital, but eventually agreed when his wife insisted, the report mentioned.

He remains in the hospital in “stable” health and is receiving “first-class treatment”, it added.

Wozniak is reported to be worth $100 million. He co-founded the fledgling Apple Computer company in 1976 with business partner Steve Jobs, who died in 2011.

He created the Apple I and Apple II computers, which were essential in the 1970s and 1980s personal computer revolution.
