Nelson Mandela much better today - Jacob Zuma

South African President Jacob Zuma says that Nelson Mandela's condition has improved, but still remains critical.

"He is much better today than he was when I saw him last night," Mr Zuma said after speaking to the 94-year-old's medical team.

South Africa's first black president - an icon of the anti-apartheid struggle - has been in hospital in Pretoria since 8 June with a lung infection.

Mr Zuma cancelled a visit to Mozambique to visit Mr Mandela in hospital.
