Former US President George H. W. Bush has been hospitalized with an infection the day after his wife Barbara’s funeral.
US media report that he is in intensive care. In a statement, a family spokesman said he had contracted an infection that spread to his blood, but was “responding to treatments”.
The 93-year-old was admitted to hospital in Houston on Sunday morning.
Barbara Bush, the only woman to see both her husband and her son sworn in as US president, died last Tuesday and was laid to rest on Saturday.
