The 93-years-old leader has been facing health issues in recent years. It could be mentioned here that about a year ago, Mandela was admitted and treated for his respiratory problem at Johannesburg's Milpark hospital.
Mandela is still being regarded high in South Africa for his contribution in fighting race discrimination in the nation. Furthermore, the erstwhile anti-apartheid activist was the first black president to a nation till then which was ruled by white minority.
A government official said the former leader was "in good spirits and well".
