Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger has been admitted to a New York City hospital for observation after a fall in his home.

NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital says in a statement that Kissinger entered the hospital on Tuesday.

The hospital says the 89-year-old ex-diplomat was expected to be discharged later in the day. It declined to say how he fell or what his injuries were.

Kissinger served under presidents Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford. He was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 1973 and the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 1977.
