Wales' First Minister has spoken of the legacy Nelson Mandela has left following his death yesterday.
Carwyn Jones said: "Just to take the measure of somebody who had such a strength of character that allowed him to put aside his difficulties, his trials, his sufferings, for the good of all people - that really is his legacy."
All flags at Cardiff Castle are being flown at half-mast today in memory of Nelson Mandela.
The South African President received the Freedom of the City of Cardiff in the castle grounds in June 1998.
Twitter users who met Nelson Mandela when he visited Cardiff in 1998 have been sharing their memories of him.
The leader of the Welsh Liberal Democrats, Kirsty Williams, has described Nelson Mandela as 'an inspirational leader' and 'a truly great man'.
In June 1998 the leaders of the European Union gathered for a summit in Cardiff, where they took the opportunity to salute Nelson Mandela, who was in his final year as President of South Africa.
It was his only visit to Wales and he accepted the Freedom of Cardiff, giving a speech that praised the Welsh contribution to the anti-apartheid struggle.
He displayed his customary magnanimity, acknowledging that rugby did finally cut its links with white-ruled South Africa rather than mentioning the years of protest before it did so. Nevertheless, the only person he thanked by name was Bert Pierce, the former leader of the Welsh Communist Party.
As the world wakes up to hear the news of Nelson Mandela's death, the Welsh and UK papers react and pay tribute to his life.
The announcement came last night in a statement made by South African President Jacob Zuma.
Tributes are pouring in for Nelson Mandela from the world of rugby. International rugby referee Nigel Owens met Mandela. He said it was an "honour" and a privilege" to meet him.
