The South African presidency says former President Nelson Mandela has been discharged from a hospital after an improvement in his condition.

A statement from the office of President Jacob Zuma says 94-year-old Mandela was discharged on Saturday and will now receive care at his home. Officials say he was treated for pneumonia.

Mandela was admitted to a hospital in the South African capital of Pretoria on the night of March 27. It was his third trip to a hospital since December.

In the statement, Zuma thanked the medical team and hospital staff that looked after Mandela.
