Former President George H.W. Bush has returned home after spending two weeks under doctors' care for pneumonia.

The 92-year-old's spokesman Jim McGrath revealed Bush Sr. was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas on April 14 due to a "persistent cough", which was subsequently diagnosed as a "mild case" of the lung infection, while he was also battling chronic bronchitis.


However, the retired politician, father of ex-U.S. President George W. Bush, has since made a good recovery and was discharged on Friday morning.

A statement issued via Twitter read that the President and his wife are "pleased to be home."


Bush, who served as America's leader from 1989 to 1993, was also hospitalized with pneumonia in January, causing him to miss the inauguration of the President, Donald Trump.
