A statement from his handlers conveyed that he was taken to the hospital for a routine medical check-up.

Without mentioning his condition, the statement relayed that the retired president would stay at the hospital for sometime as doctors conduct tests.

"His physician Dr David Silverstein said the former president will spend a couple of nights in the hospital to accord the doctors enough time to carry out their investigations," the statement from the retired president's offices read.
