The rugby captain whose handshake with Nelson Mandela came to define the progress of post-apartheid South Africa pays tribute to his idol.
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.
Boxing champion Vitaly Klitschko told the crowd of anti-government demonstrators in Kiev that their protests must remain peaceful.
"We do not want to be kept quiet by a policeman's truncheon," he said.
Mr Klitschko, the leader of the opposition Udar (Punch) party, is increasingly seen as a national leader-in-waiting.
Addressing the anti-government protests in Ukraine's capital of Kiev, he demanded the release of political prisoners, the resignation of the government and early elections.
"This is a decisive moment when all Ukrainians have gathered here because they don't want to live in a country where corruption rules and where there is no justice," the leader of the opposition Udar (Punch) party said.

International Correspondent John Irvine has been speaking to locals as they prepare to welcome their most famous son home to rest for the final time.
A man who worked against and with Nelson Mandela paid tribute to the "incalculable" impact he had on South Africa and the world. Pik Botha served as his country's foreign minister in the last few years of the apartheid regime, and helped negotiate Nelson Mandela's release from prison in 1990.
Mr Botha said he was grateful to have known and worked with Mandela, whom he later became friends with. He said the challenge for South Africa now is to sustain his legacy, as Mark Austin reports.
Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators gathered on Kiev's Independence Square, protesting against President Viktor Yanukovich and his plans for closer ties with Russia.
The protesters are furious that the government decided to ditch a landmark pact with the European Union in favour of closer economic cooperation with Moscow, Ukraine's Soviet-era overlord.
A group of protesters managed to topple a statue of Lenin in the centre of the city.
The 3,5 metre high statue of the 1917 Bolshevik revolution leader had stood there since 1946. Opposition leaders denied any link to its removal.
The demonstrators have erected blockades to defend the central Independence Square - now transformed into a tent village, sustained by donations of food and clothing - from any police attempt to retake it.
After last weekend's violent clashes between riot police and protesters, the atmosphere was calmer.
Near the presidential office, facing heavily-shielded riot police, protesters took turns playing a piano with EU sign on it.
Winnie Mandela attended a service a memorial service in Johannesburg this morning alongside South Africa's president Jacob Zuma.
The former wife of Nelson Mandela joined millions across the country taking part in a national day of prayer and reflection to commemorate the life of the anti-apartheid leader, as Africa Correspondent Rohit Kachroo reports.
French troops have arrived in the Central African Republic amid ongoing violence between Muslim and Christian communities.
Why are the French sending troops?
CAR is a former French colony, which has seen decades of instability since its independence in 1960.
The country’s location is a major concern. Neighbouring South Sudan and DR Congo are fragile and the international community is afraid the conflict could spread.
The UN Security Council authorized a French-backed peacekeeping force to quell this spiralling violence.
Who are the different sides and why are they fighting?
In March, opposition rebels ousted the country’s president Francois Bozize.
The largely Muslim Seleka rebel group then suspended the constitution and installed its leader, Michel Djotodia, as the president.
Mr Djotodia has since lost the control over his fighters, who embarked on months of looting, rapes and killings of civilian communities, according to the United Nations Security Council.
The Christian majority have now formed militias and have been fighting back against the rebels, the UN say.
The conflict has since deteriorated into religious violence.
How many foreign soldiers are in the country?
France is deploying 1,600 troops to use force to help African peacekeepers struggling to restore order.
The African Union force is also due to be increased to 6,000 from 3,500.
Will the UK get involved in the conflict?
Not directly. The UK is in talks about providing "limited logistical support."
The Ministry of Defence said there was no prospect of combat troops being sent.
Are civilians in danger?
The Red Cross reported that over 400 people have been killed over the weekend since Friday, many civilian. UN says nearly 400,000 people have been displaced, with 70,000 forced to flee the country.
2.3 million children are affected by the crisis, UNICEF says.
Crowds of angry anti-government protesters toppled a statue of Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin in the Ukrainian capital of Kiev. Once the statue was down, the demonstrators decapitated it and attacked it with hammers.
