LOS ANGELES, June 24 (UPI) -- "Jeopardy!" host Alex Trebek is recovering from a mild heart attack at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles, Sony Pictures Television said.

"Trebek is in good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing. He is expected to fully recover and be back at 'Jeopardy!' when production begins taping in July for the new season, the show's 29th," Sony said in a statement Sunday.

The Hollywood Reporter said Trebek, 71, was hospitalized Saturday. He previously suffered a heart attack in December 2007.
