Former US President George H W Bush has been discharged from hospital 12 days after being admitted for a blood infection.
Mr Bush, 93, was admitted to Houston Methodist Hospital in Texas a few days after the death of his wife Barbara.
He was president from 1989-93 and his son, George W Bush, went on to serve in the same role.
Mr Bush was admitted to the same hospital about a year ago for a cough that was later found to be mild pneumonia.
Mr Bush became the 41st US president after serving eight years as vice-president to Ronald Reagan.
His term in office was defined by foreign policy, coming at a time when communism was collapsing in Eastern Europe.
Mr Bush built a successful international coalition to end Saddam Hussein’s occupation of Kuwait in the first Iraq War.
But despite achieving popularity ratings of 90%, he was accused of neglecting domestic affairs and was defeated by Bill Clinton in the 1992 presidential election.
