DescriptionPhilippine President Rodrigo Duterte missed several meetings at a regional summit because he was taking "power naps", said the presidential office.

A spokesman said Mr Duterte missed four scheduled events on Wednesday because he was "catching up on sleep".

Mr Duterte and other world leaders are in Singapore attending the Association of South East Asian Nations (Asean) meeting.

The 73-year-old defended his actions, saying: "What's wrong with my nap?"

Mr Duterte has previously missed events at other international summits as well as in the Philippines. His health has been a constant source of speculation over the year, and he revealed in October that he had had a cancer scare.
