Crowds have been gathering outside Nelson Mandela's home in Johannesburg, where he died on Thursday evening, to pay tribute and mourn the much-loved South African leader.
Mr Mandela - who had been fighting a lung infection - died "peacefully in the company of his family" President Jacob Zuma announced on Thursday.
The mood is sombre, with those not taking part in singing and dancing quietly remembering Nelson Mandela.
Mr Mandela is credited with uniting South Africans of every colour since he became the country's first post-apartheid president in 1994.
Many mourners held overnight vigils near Mr Mandela's home, after hearing news of his death.
Mr Mandela's former home in Soweto, now a museum, has also become a focal point for those who treasure his memory.
And in Mr Mandela's home village of Qunu, family members have been trying to comfort each other.
Mourners also gathered in the early morning outside the Cape Town City Hall, where Mr Mandela made his first speech after release from his 27-year incarceration in 1990.
Mr Mandela is being remembered throughout Africa and the world. Here a Kenyan man sells newspapers to passing traffic.
Lungi Morrison, the granddaughter of Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, was among those who paid tribute at a memorial in London, on the steps of the South African High Commission.
