US president Barack Obama has paid tribute to Nelson Mandela following the global icon’s death.
Mandela passed away, aged 95, in his Johannesburg home following a long battle with illness that saw him hospitalised on a number of occasions.
Speaking at the White House, President Obama spoke about the legacy Mandela left the world, as well as the inspiration he drew from the former South African president.
