British pop star George Michael has been released from a Vienna hospital and will be spending Christmas at home.

Austria's state broadcaster said the singer was released early Thursday morning. The 48-year-old was being treated for Pneumonia.

Broadcaster ORF said Michael was scheduled to catch a flight to London later Thursday.

The former Wham frontman was hospitalized late last month after canceling a performance in Vienna.
