After spending the end of last year in hospital with a lung infection and gall stones, Nelson Mandela looks like he is recovering well and in far better spirits.

This family picture, taken on February 2, shows the 94-year-old with his youngest great-grandson, Zen Manaway.

In a recent interview with The Grio, Nelson Mandela's granddaughters said: “His health is very good. He’s surrounded by family.

“We go to the house all the time. He’s really happiest the most when he spends time with his great grandchildren.

"So before we came on the trip we literally went to go see him to say bye. So he’s in really really good spirits. We’re very happy."
