S. Africa's ex-president Nelson Mandela discharged from hospital
JOHANNESBURG (REUTERS) - Former South African president Nelson Mandela has been discharged from hospital after routine tests and is doing well, the government said on Sunday.
"The doctors have completed the tests. He is well and as before, his health remains under the management of the medical team," it said in a statement.
Mr Mandela, 94, had spent a night in a hospital after he was admitted for scheduled tests, the presidency said Sunday.
The African National Congress, South Africa's ruling party, said it wanted to emphasize that the check-up is "routine" and appealed to the media to respect the privacy of Mandela and his family.
