'Sweet' tribute to Nelson Mandela

A portrait of the former South African President Nelson Mandela has been made with 5,000 cupcakes.

The tribute was created by children with cancer and volunteers from a charity in Johannesburg as part of the celebrations for his 95th birthday on 18 July.

Earlier this week, President Jacob Zuma said the former leader remained "critical but stable" in a Pretoria hospital.
