Hillary Clinton back on track as Trump goes shy on health

Hillary Clinton is recovering from pneumonia and remains "healthy and fit to serve as president of the United States", her doctor said yesterday.

The statement was part of medical information Mrs Clinton's campaign released after her diagnosis last week.

Mrs Clinton's doctor found that the remainder of the Democratic presidential nominee's complete physical exam was "normal" and said she was in "excellent mental condition".

Dr Lisa Bardack added that Mrs Clinton was "recovering well with antibiotics and rest" after becoming overheated, dehydrated and feeling dizzy during a 9/11 memorial ceremony in New York on Sunday.

Mrs Clinton's aides said that she would return to the campaign trail today.

She will also meet with foreign leaders during the UN General Assembly next week.

The meeting comes as Mrs Clinton tries to cast Republican rival Donald Trump as unprepared and unfit to serve as commander in chief.

Meanwhile, Mr Trump handed over a one-page summary of a recent physical examination on a doctor's television show.

However, his campaign did not reveal what was disclosed to the programme.

Ever the showman, Mr Trump appeared on The Dr Oz Show in what was billed by his aides as a discussion about his general wellbeing and his family's medical history.

However, reversing what his team had said earlier, the Republican candidate handed host Mehmet Oz one page of results from a physical conducted last week by his physician, Dr Harold Bornstein.

The show does not air until a later date, and the campaign declined to immediately disclose the results.

A statement from the show said "Dr Oz took Mr Trump though a full review", looking at his nervous system, cardiovascular health, prostate health and family medical history.

Dr Bornstein had previously written a note declaring that 70-year-old Mr Trump would, if elected, be the healthiest president in history.
