Former US President Bill Clinton has shared a video message about the recovery following his discharge from the hospital after being diagnosed with a urinary tract infection.


"I was so touched by the outpouring of support I received during my stay in the hospital. Thanks so much," said Clinton in a Twitter video.

He also thanked the hospital staff for the support he received fighting the sepsis, and promised to be around "for a lot longer."

"I’d also like to thank the doctors and nurses at UC Irvine Medical Centre for the absolutely wonderful care that they gave me over the last seven days."

"I am really glad to be back home. I’m doing great, enjoying this beautiful fall weather. I’m on the road to recovery," the former President said, encouraging Americans to take time and care for themselves.

Last Tuesday, Clinton, 75, was admitted to the UCI Medical Center's intensive care unit in southern California. The politician left the hospital on Sunday accompanied by his ex-wife Hillary Clinton.
