AMERICUS, Ga. (WALB) - Former President Jimmy Carter was released from the hospital after he broke his hip recently, according to the Carter Foundation.

Carter was released from Phoebe Sumter Medical Center on Thursday.

He will continue to recuperate from home and undergo physical therapy as part of his recovery from hip replacement surgery, the Carter Foundation said in a release.

On Wednesday, former First Lady Rosalynn Carter felt faint and was admitted to hospital.

She and Carter left the hospital Thursday morning.

Carter plans to teach Sunday school at Maranatha Baptist Church on Sunday, the Carter Foundation said.

“Both President and Mrs. Carter extend their thanks to the many people who sent well wishes the past few days,” the foundation said in a release.
