“I, for one, am going to do my best to be around. To keep doing the best job I can for a lot longer,” he said.

Mr Clinton, 75, was hospitalized in the intensive care unit last Tuesday after complaining of fatigue. He was diagnosed with sepsis, an infection that spreads through the bloodstream.

Mr Clinton was released from hospital on Sunday.

“His fever and white blood cell count have returned to normal and he will return to New York to complete a course of antibiotics,” said Alpesh Amin, chairman of the department of medicine and executive director of hospital medicine at the University of California Irvine Medical Center.

“I’m really happy to be back home. I’m doing great, enjoying this beautiful autumn weather. I’m on my way to recovery,” Mr. Clinton said in the video.

The former president also offered important advice for those listening to his message: “I want to remind everyone out there: Take the time to listen to your body and take care of yourself. We all have work to do and each of us has a life.” have an important role to play in and in the near future.”
