Nelson Mandela's wife Graca has spoken about her husband's condition in hospital.

Referring to Mr Mandela by his clan name, she said: "Although Madiba may be uncomfortable, very few times he is in pain, he is fine."

"The best gift that he has given is the gift of unity," she said.

Graca Machel was speaking at a fundraising drive for a children's hospital that will be named after the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader.

Mr Mandela remains "critical but stable" in hospital.
