Cape Town - Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu has once again been admitted to hospital, the Desmond and Leah Tutu Foundation said on Wednesday.
Tutu, who turned 88 in October, has been admitted for a "stubborn infection", his wife Leah told the foundation.
The Nobel laureate has been hospitalised several times over the past few years for treatment of a similar condition.
Last year, Tutu spent his 87th birthday in a Cape Town hospital.
The anti-apartheid struggle stalwart had been hospitalised since late September.
