Nelson Mandela looked "relaxed and well" during a visit by President Jacob Zuma and other party leaders, South Africa's SABC TV reported.
The station, which will broadcast footage of the visit, has posted a picture of Mandela at his Johannesburg home:
He's in good shape. We had conversation with him, shook hands, smiled. He’s up & about, he’s stabilised. We’re happy he's fine.#Mandela
