The former South African president, Nelson Mandela, has been discharged from hospital, the South African presidency says.
Mr Mandela will continue to receive treatment at his home in Johannesburg until he has fully recovered.
The 94-year-old was admitted to hospital 18 days ago where he was treated for a lung infection and gallstones.
