Former U.S. president Jimmy Carter is recovering in hospital after suffering an "upset stomach" onboard a flight to Cleveland, Ohio on Tuesday (28Sep10).

America's 39th president was admitted to Metro Health Hospital at approximately 11.30am local time after paramedics were called to meet his plane upon arrival at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport. A spokesperson for the 85-year-old politician says he is "resting comfortably" after receiving medical attention, reports CNN.

Spokeswoman Deanna Congileo, from his non-profit organisation The Carter Center, says in a statement, "While on a flight to Cleveland, former U.S. President Jimmy Carter developed an upset stomach, and, upon arrival, was taken to Metro Health Hospital for observation. He is resting comfortably and is expected to resume his book tour this week." (JMA/WNWCPL/MT)
