CAPE TOWN - Anti-apartheid cleric and Nobel laureate, Desmond Tutu, was discharged from a South African hospital on Friday after almost two weeks of routine tests, his foundation said.

Tutu, who spent his 87th birthday in the hospital, has had prostate cancer for roughly two decades and has largely withdrawn from public life.

His foundation said in a statement Tutu 'has been discharged from [the] hospital and is re-gathering his strength at home.'

Using the pulpit to criticize the white minority apartheid regime, Tutu won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his non-violent opposition to apartheid.
