Johannesburg - Former president Nelson Mandela is recuperating at home and back to his daily routine, the presidency said on Monday.

"Mandela has resumed his normal day-to-day life," spokesperson Harold Maloka said.

"He is recuperating at home with the support of his family."

The presidency said it would not be providing any further updates on Mandela at this stage.

Support

"The presidency thanks the media for support and co-operation, as well as messages of support and well wishes that continue to reach the presidency through the Presidential Hotline," said Maloka.

Mandela was discharged on Sunday after spending a night in hospital.

President Jacob Zuma said he was making good progress and had a good night's rest.

"The doctors have assured us that there is nothing to worry about and that Madiba is in good health," he said.

"He is surrounded by his family and is relaxed and comfortable. The doctors are happy with the progress he is making."

Zuma said the 93-year-old Nobel Peace Prize winner had undergone a diagnostic procedure on Saturday to determine the cause of his long-standing abdominal complaint.
