Former US President George H.W. Bush has been hospitalised in Houston, Texas, it was reported this morning.
The 92-year-old is in a stable condition and “doing fine”, his office chief of staff told CBS Houston affiliate KHOU television.
Bush Sr is expected to go home in a couple of days, Jean Becker said.
It is thought the 41st US President was taken to the Methodist Hospital in Houston although the reason for his admission is not yet known.
The father of George W Bush was taken to hospital in July 2015 after breaking his neck in a fall at his home in Maine.
He appeared three months later, looking frail and in a wheelchair, to throw the first pitch at a game between the Kansas City Royals and his beloved Houston Astros .
In December 2014, Bush spent a week at a Houston hospital after experiencing breathing difficulties.
The former Republican president served from 1989 to 1993, his term defined by his aggressive response to Iraqi President
Saddam Hussein’s invasion of Kuwait in 1990. He lost the election for a second term to President Bill Clinton.
