Doctor: Hillary Clinton diagnosed with pneumonia, 'recovering nicely' after 9/11 event

The cancellation was confirmed by her campaign on Sunday night following Clinton's abrupt departure from a ceremony marking the 15th anniversary of the September 11 attacks in downtown Manhattan because she felt "overheated", The Hill daily reported.

Video captured at the memorial event in New York City showed Clinton having great difficulty walking as she entered a van.

According a statement from Clinton's doctor, she was diagnosed with pneumonia on Friday.

In Cleveland last week, Clinton suffered a two-minute coughing fit last week, which she blamed on allergies.

Clinton was being treated with antibiotics and had been "advised to rest and modify her schedule", the doctor said.

According to the New York Times a chipper Hillary said, "It's a handsome day in New York", but she and her motorcade left without the group of reporters who are supposed to travel with her to public events.

The Democratic White House hopeful cancelled a campaign fundraising trip to California in which she was due to leave on Monday morning for a two-day swing that included fundraisers and a speech on the economy. She then traveled to her Chappaqua residence.

"He has some cartilage damage which we'll go in and see. don't know how long (he'll be out)", Fisher said at a news conference. Fisher said there was no structural damage to James' knee but the timetable for his return is anywhere from 4-10 weeks.

Another health issue has rocked Hillary Clinton's campaign.

A Democratic congressman who stood behind Hillary Clinton at a September 11 memorial ceremony says he chatted with the Democratic candidate beforehand and that "she did not seem out of the ordinary at all" although the conditions were "stiflingly hot".

Concerns about Clinton's health have been raised by Trump who has cited a concussion in 2012 that required hospitalization. Mr Trump garnered the support of 39.7 per cent against 39 per cent for Clinton, according to the poll released on Saturday. Her doctor attributed the episode to a stomach virus and dehydration. She also has experienced deep vein thrombosis, a clot usually in the leg, and takes a blood thinner to prevent new clots.

Clinton left the event after about 90 minutes while it was still underway, Nick Merrill, a Clinton spokesman, said.

It was definitely humid on the East Coast today, so it is very likely that Clinton was overheated at the memorial service. The person "said something like, 'We're going to move now, '" Crowley said. Neither Trump nor Clinton spoke at the event, in keeping with the solemn nature of the annual remembrance of the deadliest terrorist attack on American soil.

Trump's personal physician has said the Republican presidential nominee is in excellent health both physically and mentally.
