This is the fourth time that Bush, who is now 92 years of age, has been hospitalised in the past three years, having been treated for pneumonia in 2014, and breaking his neck in 2015 as a result of a fall in his home.

Bush served as vice-president during Ronald Reagan's two terms in office, and then went on to succeed him as President.

Bush's public appearances have been rare lately, as he is in a wheelchair as a result of a rare form of Parkinson's disease. That being said, that hasn't stopped him from celebrating his birthdays, with him recently parachute jumping out of a helicopter for his 90th birthday.

The father of 43rd President George W. Bush is set to be released in a few days, Becker has said.
