Nelson Mandela: Security forces pay tribute in song

The three-day period during which the body of Nelson Mandela lay in state has come to an end.

South African officials say around 100,000 mourners have viewed Mr Mandela's body at the Union Buildings in Pretoria. Some had to be turned away because queues were too long.

Members of the South African Defence Force and the police paid tribute to Nelson Mandela in song at Union Buildings, much to the delight of onlookers.
