Last Friday, Al had taken to Instagram to explain his absence on Today, following many messages from loyal fans who were wanting to know where he was.

Alongside a photo of some flowers, Al wrote: “So many of you have been thoughtfully asking where I’ve been. Last week I was admitted to the hospital with a blood clot in my leg which sent some clots into my lungs.

“After some medical whack-a-mole, I am so fortunate to be getting terrific medical care and on the way to recovery. Thanks for all the well wishes and prayers and hope to see you soon. Have a great weekend, everyone.”
