Jeopardy! host Alex Trebek was admitted to the hospital Saturday in Los Angeles after suffering a mild heart attack, according to his rep. He is “in good spirits and is currently under observation and undergoing further testing,” the rep said.  Trebek is expected to fully recover and will begin filming the popular answer-and-question show’s 29th season in July.

Trebek, 71, recently told the Associated Press that he’s not quite ready to retire from Jeopardy!, which he’s hosted for the past 28 years. “Saying that I’ve THOUGHT about it doesn’t mean that I’m DOING it,” he told the AP in May.
