Morsi, 67, fainted after a court session and later died, per Reuters.

He was serving a seven-year sentence for falsifying his candidacy application for the 2012 presidential race.

After being removed from power by the military in 2013, Morsi served as Egypt's fifth president for slightly more than a year.

Morsi, representing the Muslim Brotherhood, rose to power after long-term president Hosni Mubarak was forced out of office by the Egyptian Revolution of 2011.

When in office, Morsi issued sweeping decrees to concentrate power in the executive that were widely condemned by international press as an Islamist coup.

Protests emerged against him in 2013, eventually culminating in a military coup which removed the Muslim Brotherhood, and Morsi, from power.
