A Russian Soyuz capsule carrying three crew landed safely on Saturday from the International Space Station, Russian mission control said, after delays undocking kept the astronauts an extra day in orbit.

"The landing was without incident. The crew feels normal," a spokesman for the Russian mission control centre near Moscow said.

The Russian space agency Roskosmos said in a statement that the craft with US astronaut Tracy Caldwell Dyson and Russian cosmonauts Alexander Skvortsov and Mikhail Kornienko landed in the Kazakh steppes at 9.23 Moscow time (0523 GMT).
