Former French President Jacques Chirac has been released from hospital after a health scare on Monday evening.

The 81-year-old is said to have been admitted to the American Hospital near Paris suffering from gout.

Elected president in 1995, Chirac has kept out of the public eye in recent years. His wife, Bernadette, has taken on a more prominent role in political life.
