Posted on Thursday, 5 December by

Nelson Mandela

South Africa’s first black president, Nelson Mandela, has died at the age of 95. The anti-apartheid icon revolutionised politics in his home country and as a result, his influence was felt across the world.

Mandela had been in and out of hospital battling a recurrent lung infection. After battling illness several times in recent years, his family and supports had been resigned to the prospect of his death in the last few months.

After challenging white minority rule in his youth and facing life imprisonment in 1964, Nelson Mandela was released in 1990 and just four years later won an election be South Africa’s first black president, signalling an end to racial segregation.

These are the top tributes to a man who changed the world, Nelson Mandela.
