Leon Neal/AFP/Getty Images(PETORIA, South Africa) — Former South African President Nelson Mandela was discharged from the hospital on Sunday afternoon, according to a statement from the South African President’s office.

Mandela, 94, has “returned to his Johannesburg home following a successful medical examination at a Pretoria hospital,” the statement said.

“The doctors have completed the tests. He is well and as before, his health remains under the management of the medical team,” a spokesman for the South African President’s office said.

The former president was admitted to the hospital on Saturday for a scheduled medical check-up.

In December, the anti-Apartheid activist was hospitalized for 18 days. He was treated for gallstones and a lung infection.
