Nelson Mandela is "fine" after his critical lung illness earlier this year, fellow ex-political prisoner Tokyo Sexwale said ahead of the premiere Sunday of a film based on the South African icon's autobiography.
"So all of you are wondering where is he. Madiba says of his state of health 'I am not ill, I am just old'," Sexwale told journalists on Saturday, using Mandela's clan name.
"So, he is fine, he is out of hospital, he is back at home, that much is known. But his spirit is with us."
