Louisville - Boxing great Muhammad Ali has won his bout with a severe urinary tract infection.
The three-time world heavyweight champion was released from an undisclosed hospital, said family spokesperson Bob Gunnell.
"Ali is back home and looking forward to celebrating his 73rd birthday on 17 January with his family and friends", Gunnell said.
"He's in great spirits and enjoying being back home," Gunnell said. "He's back in his daily routine."
Ali has been waging a battle with Parkinson's disease for years.
He was hospitalised on 20 December with what was initially believed to be a mild case of pneumonia. Doctors later determined Ali was suffering from a severe urinary tract infection and not pneumonia, Gunnell said.Ali's public appearances have diminished in recent years as he wages his fight against Parkinson's disease, but he still enjoys getting out and watching sports and visiting friends.
He appeared in public in September at a ceremony in his hometown of Louisville in Kentucky for the Muhammad Ali Humanitarian Awards.
