Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has been released from hospital in Ohio after spending two nights fighting a viral infection. America's 39th leader was admitted to Metro Health Hospital on Tuesday, September 28 after paramedics were called to meet his plane upon arrival at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport.
Carter developed an "upset stomach", and, upon arrival, was taken to hospital for observation.
Associated Press further reported that Carter, who turns 86 on Friday, felt ill during a Delta Air Lines flight from Atlanta to Cleveland. Soon after the plane landed, the former President, who won the Nobel Peace Prize in 2002, was rushed to hospital. The hospitalization has interrupted his tour to promote his new book "White House Diary" in Ohio, North Carolina, South Carolina and Washington.
