Desmond Tutu has been admitted to a Cape Town hospital for a persistent infection, his South African foundation said on Tuesday.
The foundation, which is named after 83-year-old Tutu and his wife Leah, quoted their daughter Mpho as saying the family hopes the Nobel Peace Prize laureate will be able to return home in a "day or two."
Desmond Tutu has been treated for prostate cancer for many years. He announced his retirement from public life in 2011 but has still traveled widely and made public appearances.
