Former US President Jimmy Carter says he's fine after 'bad cold' shortened Guyana visit

Former U.S. President Jimmy Carter has made his first public appearance since cutting short an election observation visit in Guyana.

The 90-year-old ex-president told attendees of a summit at the Carter Center in Atlanta that he had a "bad cold," according to remarks from Monday morning provided by the center.

On Sunday, the center said Carter was returning to Atlanta a day early because he was not feeling well.

Carter said Monday that he is fine and "getting along well."

A photo released by the center showed Carter standing at a podium.

Carter is scheduled to speak with the group again Tuesday and attend an unrelated awards ceremony on Wednesday.
