The former President was hospitalized with a urinary tract infection that spread to his bloodstream on Thursday.

Former US President Bill Clinton, 75, was released from the University of California Irvine Medical Center on Sunday morning.

He was captured leaving the hospital arm-in-arm with his wife Hillary and showing a thumb-up after being questioned about his condition.

Clinton’s health overseer Alpesh N. Amin has released a statement after the ex-President quit the hospital.

"President Clinton was discharged from UC Irvine Medical Center today. His fever and white blood cell count are normalized, and he will return home to New York to finish his course of antibiotics.”

The doctor added that it was an honor to treat Clinton and promised to check his progress.

The 75-year-old politician was hospitalized on Thursday in an intensive care unit (ICU) after he felt sick on Tuesday. Though it was not required by medical conditions, the ICU was chosen due to privacy concerns. Clinton was in a good mood during the treatment process.

According to Clinton’s doctors, the ex-President could have been discharged on Saturday, but he decided to stay in hospital overnight since he was receiving antibiotics via IV and not orally.
