The present status of higher-order results in the electroweak theory is summarised, with particular emphasis on recent two-loop results for the prediction of the W-boson mass in the Standard Model and leading three-loop corrections to the rho parameter. The remaining theoretical uncertainties in the prediction for the W-boson mass and the effective weak mixing angle are discussed.
