Mandela 'has been the driver behind the person I needed to be'

Nelson Mandela is an inspiration to millions around the world - none more so than his own family.

His grandson, Mandla Mandela, chief of the Mvezo Traditional Council in South Africa, spoke about how he helped shape his life and choice of career.

The 38-year-old said "My grandfather has really been the driver behind the person I needed to be."

The 94-year-old former president is in hospital for the third time this year, and remains in intensive care.
