Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, 83, has been re-admitted to hospital, a week after he was discharged

, his foundation said on Tuesday.

“He was discharged from hospital last Tuesday, and re-admitted this afternoon [28 July] after expressing renewed discomfort,” the Desmond and Leah Tutu Legacy Foundation said in a statement.

"His doctors considered it prudent for him to return to hospital for observation.

"He'll have a few days of bed-rest while his medical dream team brings the situation under control and determines the next course of action, if any. He will stay in hospital until the weekend, at least," his daughter Reverend Canon Mpho Tutu said.

She said it was unrelated to his prostate cancer treatment. His oncologist had said his prostate-specific antigen level was “pleasingly low”.

His previous admission was to treat an infection.
