The 93-year-old Graham, who attended Wheaton College, was admitted to Mission Hospital in Asheville overnight Saturday for treatment of the lung infection.

Ross says Graham watched the closing ceremony of the London Olympics from his hospital bed Sunday evening.

A formal report from the hospital is expected later Monday morning.

Graham was hospitalized for pneumonia last November. His staff says the evangelist's health has been good since his release, though he had remained at his home in Montreat, N.C., because of age-related conditions.

He's working on an upcoming book.
