Former U.S. President Bill Clinton will remain overnight in a Southern California hospital following a urological infection, but he has continued to make “excellent progress” and is expected to be discharged on Sunday, his spokesman said in a statement on Saturday.

The 75-year-old, who served as president from 1993 to 2001, entered the University of California Irvine Medical Center on Tuesday evening after suffering from fatigue.

Clinton spokesperson Angel Urena said the former president was doing well.

“He is in great spirits and has been spending time with family, catching up with friends, and watching college football,” Urena said in a statement posted on Twitter.

Clinton’s wife, former Secretary of State and 2016 Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, was at the hospital on Saturday.
