Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi has been discharged from Milan's San Raffaele hospital after undergoing 24 days of tests, a person close to the matter said on Saturday, APA reports citing Reuters.

Berlusconi, 84, returned to his villa in Arcore, north of Milan, after leaving hospital on Friday, Corriere della Sera said on its website. A hospital-like room has been set up at the property as a condition by doctors to allow the discharge, it said.

The media magnate was flown to the hospital on April 6 from southern France, where he had spent Easter at his daughter Marina's house.
