Australian swimming legend Ian Thorpe has been released from hospital where he had been in intensive care battling an infection contracted following shoulder surgery.

His manager James Erskine confirmed his release.

"It looks as though the infections have cleared up. It can always re-infect as it's done twice before but we are hopeful," he told AAP.

In February, Thorpe was found by police at his parent's apartment in a disorientated state, trying to break into a van after taking a combination of antidepressants and medication for a shoulder injury.

He won five Olympic gold medals, including three at Sydney in 2000.
