Former England captain David Beckham has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela, whom he met while on international duty in South Africa in 2003.
Writing on his Facebook page, Beckham said: "My heart goes out to the people in South Africa and Mr Mandela's family.
"We have lost a true gentleman and a courageous human being. It was truly an honor to have known a man who had genuine love for so many people. Rest in peace."
Six-year-old Emma Williams was invited to sit on Nelson Mandela's lap when he visited Wales in June 1998. Now 22, she speaks to ITV News.
Nelson Mandela touched aspects of British public life in a way that very few other international figures have managed.
