The former archbishop of Cape Town, Desmond Tutu, who met Mandela last week, said: "He was all right, I mean, he's 92, you know. And he's frail."
Earlier this month the ANC said it wanted Twitter to take action after a hoax report of Mandela's death was widely distributed on the social network site.
The Nelson Mandela Foundation declined to comment on his health today. Earlier it had said: "We can confirm that Mr Mandela is at Milpark hospital undergoing routine tests. He is in no danger and is in good spirits."
Children at McAuley House primary school, neighbouring the hospital, created "Get well soon" banners and shouted from classroom windows: "Get well Madiba. We love you Madiba."

I'm currently watching bbc and they are assuring us he'll get better and that the MEDIA should respect Mandela and not spread/cause any rumour to spread. They also say he has been discharged but currently not at home yet.
