As we say goodbye to Nelson Mandela, who has passed away aged 95, we take a look at some of the memorable images from his life.
The former South African prime minister was the first black person to hold the office and will forever be remembered for his anti-colonial politics, which resulted in him serving 27 years in prison.
He garnered much acclaim for his anti-apartheid work and in 1993 was awarded the Nobel Peace Award.
Nelson Mandela passed away on 5th December 2013 at the age of 95.

Dermot says: "I'm delighted to be guest-hosting TM for a week. When Holly called me and asked, I couldn't resist, I really miss working with her, and am looking forward to having some fun."
"I'm a huge admirer of Phillip, so to be asked to stand in for the great man is indeed an honour - I can't wait!"

This week the case of an Italian woman whose child was forcibly removed by caesarian section came to light. And earlier, we met Kelly McWilliams who underwent a similar ordeal when social workers arrived to take her baby away as she was in labour.
So are too many children being taken away from their parents without good reason and is it social services who are to blame? Or are media reports giving social workers a bad name when the job they do is tough enough already?
Independent social worker and child protection consultant Joanna Nicolas joins us to discuss the issue, alongside agony aunt Denise Robertson.
