George HW Bush has been admitted to an intensive care unit to address a respiratory problem from pneumonia, according to a spokesman for the former US president.

Jim McGrath said Mr Bush’s wife, Barbara Bush, has also been admitted to hospital as a precaution after experiencing fatigue and coughing.

Mr McGrath said the 92-year-old former president was placed under sedation for a procedure to protect and clear his airway.

He is stable and resting comfortably. He has been at Houston’s Methodist Hospital since Saturday.
