Nelson Mandela's former wife Winnie Mandela has arrived at a memorial service in Johannesburg as a "national day of prayer and reflection" got underway for the former South African president.
President Jacob Zuma also arrived at the Bryanston Methodist Church to pay tribute to Mandela who died on Thursday at the age of 95.
The service is one of a series of events to mark the death of the civil rights activist.
Nelson Mandela's first ever television interview was given to ITN reporter Brian Widlake in May 1961.
Former ITV News presenter Sir Trevor McDonald was the first journalist to interview Nelson Mandela after his release from prison in 1990.
Nelson Mandela was a towering figure of utter integrity who will be remembered as the greatest African.
