Nelson Mandela is "looking better" and responding to visitors, the head of his Thembu tribe, King Buyelekhaya Dalindyebo has said after visiting him.

The former president and global statesman, 94, has been in hospital battling a recurring lung infection since 8 June.

Since Mr Mandela was hospitalised, his family's battle for control of his legacy has escalated.

Last week, his grandson Mandla lost a court case brought by rival family members over the burial site of three of Mr Mandela's children.
