The anti-apartheid icon served as South Africa’s first black president from 1994 to 1999, after spending 27 years in the notorious Robben Island prison.

Madiba – as he was affectionately known by many in South Africa – was released in 1990 and went on to guide his country to democracy.

He won the Nobel peace prize for leading South Africa to peace and democracy.

Mr Mandela was the most respected world leader there has ever been, he transformed not just South Africa, but humanity itself.

After getting out of Robben Island he ended apartheid and made sure the black people would not dominate the white people, turning  South Africa into a peaceful nation.

May his legacy live on and other leaders learn from him.
