President Franklin D. Roosevelt was told that he would die just nine months before a stroke claimed his life, a newly released memo reveals.

On July 10, 1944, just months before the presidential elections, a physician wrote he did not believe Roosevelt would be able to complete fourth term in office.

He said the pressures of presidency would make his health deteriorate further and he  would succumb to heart failure.

Dr Frank Lahey wrote up the memo so his objections were on record in case the worst came to pass.

It was held in a safe in his clinic in Bedford, Massachussetts, for the past 67 years and has now only come to light.

And as it turned out Dr Lahey was almost spot on  - Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945 aged 63, less than a year into his fourth term.
