The leader of Plaid Cymru, Leanne Wood, has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela saying "he was a truly great man who really did change the world".
"The world today mourns a great man who has inspired generations and whose achievements will last forever. "Very few people succeed in bringing about truly significant change in their lifetime. Nelson Mandela certainly was one of those individuals and the legacy of his achievements will live on in South Africa and throughout the world.
"The people of Wales can be proud of having stood in solidarity with Nelson Mandela in his struggle against apartheid, something that he recognised upon his visit to Wales in 1998 when he was granted the freedom of Cardiff. "While our thoughts are with his family at this sad time, they can take solace in the knowledge that he was a truly great man who really did change the world."
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'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.
