South Africa

South African archbishop and anti-apartheid campaigner Desmond Tutu has been admitted to a Cape Town hospital for a series of tests, his office said on Thursday.

A statement from his office was made saying, the archbishop was in good spirits and hopeful to get back home in a few days.

He has struggled with prostate cancer for about 2 decades now and will turn 87 next month. Due to this, he has had to withdraw from public life.

He became well known when he won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his non-violent opposition to the apartheid regime in South Africa.
