Spanish opera star Placido Domingo has left hospital five days after seeking treatment for a blood clot in his lung.

The veteran tenor, 72, was admitted to a hospital in his native Madrid on Monday (08Jul13) after suffering a pulmonary embolism.

He pulled out of a series of concerts to give him time to recuperate, and on Saturday (13Jul13), Domingo headed home to continue his recovery.

The musician posted a picture of himself posing next to a car on his page and added, "Going home."
