Former pop star Gary Glitter has been released on bail after he was questioned on suspicion of sexual offences.
Glitter, real name Paul Gadd, was seen leaving Charing Cross Police Station by the side entrance at around 5pm.
He was bailed to return to the police station in mid-December.
Gadd had been taken from his central London home at around 7.15 on Sunday morning and detained by officers working on Operation Yewtree, which is investigating allegations of child sex abuse against Savile and others.
A police spokesman said: "Officers working on Operation Yewtree arrested a man in his 60s in connection with the investigation.
"The man, from London, was arrested on suspicion of sexual offences, and was taken into custody at a London police station.
"This individual falls under the strand of the investigation we have termed 'Savile and others'."
Gadd served almost three years in jail in Vietnam after being convicted in March 2006 for child abuse offences.
He had moved to Vietnam to avoid media attention into his private life.
Gadd was deported back to the UK in 2008.
