The spokesman for South Africa's President says Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital and has returned to his home in Johannesburg.

Presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said in a statement Sunday that doctors had completed a "successful" medical examination of the 94-year-old Mandela and that he is "well."

The former President and anti-apartheid leader was admitted to a hospital in Pretoria on Saturday.

Mandela was hospitalized for nearly three weeks in December. At that time, he was treated for a lung infection and had a surgical procedure to remove gallstones.
