South Africans offer prayers for Nelson Mandela

Churches across South Africa are holding prayers for Nelson Mandela, who has been in hospital for four days while he is treated for pneumonia.

On Saturday, South Africa's presidency said Mr Mandela, 94, was breathing without difficulty but said that people should also prepare for the inevitable.

Many in South Africa are following his recovery closely, and some have been voicing their hopes and fears for the future.
