The 83-year-old South African cleric was admitted to a medical facility in Cape Town over the weekend (01-02Aug15) after suffering complications from his 18-year cancer struggle.

He has been battling the infection on and off for weeks, but he is now said to be recovering well, according to his daughter Mpho Tutu, who says in a statement, "The infection was a consequence of treatment for prostate cancer that the archbishop has received over the past 18 years. The cancer, itself, (is) well under control."
