Former President of the United States Bill Clinton has released a statement saying he's 'really glad to be back home' and 'doing great' after battling sepsis in a California hospital.
Clinton, 75, issued the minute-long statement via his official Twitter account Wednesday evening, and spoke on the grounds of his upstate New York home.
'I was so touched by the outpouring of support I received during my stay in the hospital, thanks so much,' said Clinton.
'I'm really glad to be back home, I'm doing great, enjoying this beautiful fall weather,' he continued.

'I'm on the road to recovery but I want to remind everyone out there, take the time to listen to your bodies and care for yourselves. We all have work to do, and each of us has an important role to play in life, and in the immediate future,' he said.
'I for one am going to do my best to be around to keep doing the most that I can for a lot longer,' Clinton added.
The clip also saw him thank the medics who'd treated him at the University of California Irvine Medical Center during his stay there last week.
His wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, accompanied him as he was discharged from the hospital on Sunday morning, following a five-night stay receiving treatment for a urological infection that triggered a dangerous condition known as sepsis.
Walking out of the hospital, he gave a thumbs-up when a reporter asked how he was feeling, and he and Hillary Clinton then boarded a black SUV. They departed in a motorcade escorted by the California Highway Patrol and headed to the airport.
The Clintons arrived back at their home in New York later on Sunday, where Bill Clinton is expected to continue his recovery.
