New Delhi, July 18: Google has honoured former South African President, anti-apartheid revolutionary and philanthropist Nelson Mandela with a Doodle on the occasion of his 96th birthday.

Born on July 18, 1918, Mandela became involved in anti-colonial politics and joined African National Congress (ANC) where he also served as the President from 1991-97.

Mandela, who was also a boxer in his younger days, first became a part of the ANC (African National Congress) and rose to prominence during the ANC's Defiance Campaign in 1952. He started his law practice in 1949, and was majorly involved in helping set free those members of the ANC convicted by the state.

Arrested and convicted for conspiracy to overthrow the state in 1962, he was sentence to life imprisonment and served 27 years of his life in prison until his release in 1990.

Honouring him on his 96th birthday, Google has outlined some of the best quotes of Madiba or Tata (Father of the Nation).
