Mandela's condition improved overnight and is now "stable" while still critical, the government said on Thursday (June 27).
The statement followed a visit by President Jacob Zuma - his second in the past 24 hours - to the anti-apartheid hero in a Pretoria hospital, where he is being treated for a lung infection.
One of his granddaughters describes his condition as 'stable' after visiting the 94-year-old anti-apartheid hero.
