The Rev. Billy Graham has been released from a North Carolina hospital after spending six days recovering from pneumonia.

Mission Hospital spokeswoman Nancy Lindell said Graham was released on Tuesday after doctors decided he had responded well to antibiotics.

Doctors say the 93-year-old evangelist will continue physical therapy at home to increase his strength.

Graham was admitted to the hospital in Asheville on Nov. 30 after suffering from congestion, a cough and slight fever. He was diagnosed with pneumonia.
