Former US president Bill Clinton has been admitted to a hospital in California and is reportedly being treated for a suspected case of sepsis.
Mr Clinton's spokesman said the ex-president is "on the mend" and "in good spirits" as he receives treatment at the University of California Irvine Medical Center.
The spokesman, Angel Urena, said Mr Clinton, 75, was admitted for a non-Covid related infection.
The US TV network CNN reported that he was hospitalised with a suspected blood infection, or sepsis.
Sepsis is a life-threatening condition where the immune system overreacts to an infection and begins to damage the body's tissues and organs.

Mr Clinton was admitted to Irvine earlier this week.
His spokesman, Mr Urena, said in a statement: "On Tuesday evening former president Bill Clinton was admitted to UCI Medical center for treatment of a non-Covid infection.
"He is on the mend, in good spirits, and incredibly thankful to the doctors, nurses and staff providing him with excellent care."
CNN reported that Clinton was in the intensive care unit, primarily to give him privacy.
He was not on a breathing machine, according to doctors treating the former president at University of California Irvine Medical Center, California.
His condition is not related to his previous heart problems or Covid-19, CNN said.
