Brazil's ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, whose throat cancer is in remission, was admitted to a Sao Paulo hospital for routine tests Saturday, his spokesman said.
Lula, 67, was expected to return to his home in a Sao Paulo suburb later in the day, Jose Chrispiniano, of the Lula Institute, told AFP.
The hospital was expected to issue a medical bulletin.
Lula was last admitted for a throat exam in April, and doctors said then that he was fine.
