South Africa's former leader Nelson Mandela is "responding better" to treatment in hospital, President Zuma says.

Mr Zuma said he was happy with the progress being made by Mr Mandela after a "difficult few days".

The 94-year-old has spent his fifth day in a Pretoria hospital suffering from a recurrent lung infection.

Relatives, including his ex-wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela, visited the ailing former leader on Tuesday.
