Donald Trump today released the results of his recent medical test, with his personal physician saying that the 70-year-old Republican presidential candidate is in "excellent physical health".

"In summer, Trump is in excellent physical health," Dr Harold N Bornstein said in a one-page medical report dated September 13, which was released to the press by his campaign.

Earlier today, the Democratic presidential candidate, 68- year-old Hillary Clinton released her updated medical record after a bout of pneumonia, with her doctor saying she is "fit to serve" as US President.

Trump, who is 6 foot 3 inches tall, weighs 107 kilograms, and his liver and thyroid functions are "all within the normal range," the report said.

His vital statistics including blood and cholesterol are also normal, but he does take a lipid lowering agent (rosuvastatin) and a low dose aspiring, it added.

He does not use tobacco products or alcohol.

"This study was reported within the range of normal," said Dr Bornstein, who has been personal physician of Trump since 1980.

"We are pleased to disclose all of the test results which show that Trump is in excellent health and has the stamina to endure – uninterrupted – the rigors of a punishing and unprecedented campaign and more importantly, the singularity demanding job of President of the United States," the campaign said.

Trump's latest medical record was made public, a day after the billionaire appeared on Dr Oz show.

Dr Oz, who saw the medical record, said that Trump "without question" is healthy enough to be the President.

"If I as doctor had a patient like him, I would think he had good health for a man of his age and I'd send him on his way," Dr Oz told the NBC News in an interview.
