Nelson Mandela discharged from South African hospital

Nelson Mandela has left hospital and has gone to his Johannesburg home, where he is continuing to receive intensive care, the South African presidency says.

The announcement came a day after officials denied reports that the 95-year-old had already been discharged.

The statement says Mr Mandela's condition remains critical and, at times, unstable.

Mike Wooldridge reports from Johannesburg.
