NNA - Pope Francis is expected to leave hospital on Saturday pending the results of his latest medical tests, the Vatican said in a statement on Friday.
The pope, 86 and suffering from a number of ailments, was taken to Rome's Gemelli hospital two days ago after complaining of breathing difficulties.
He was diagnosed with bronchitis and has responded well to an infusion of antibiotics, the Vatican said on Thursday.
"His Holiness is expected to return to Santa Marta tomorrow, once the results of the latest tests from this morning are known," the Vatican said.
Santa Marta is a residence next to St. Peter's Basilica where the pope lives. -- Reuters
