Former US president Jimmy Carter, 94, who served from 1977 to 1981 as the 39th US president, broke his hip while leaving his home in the southern state of Georgia on Monday to go turkey hunting was released from the hospital on Thursday, the Carter Center said.
The Carter Center said the former president was released from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center after undergoing hip replacement surgery.
The Carter Center said the former president planned to teach Sunday school at the Maranatha Baptist Church this weekend.
A spokeswoman for Mr Carter said former first lady Rosalynn Carter also was taken to hospital on Wednesday in Americus, Georgia after feeling faint but was discharged on Thursday along with her husband.
Jimmy Carter, America’s oldest living president, was diagnosed with brain cancer in 2015 but was declared free of the disease after treatment.
