Tens of thousands of South Africans have joined dozens of world leaders for the national memorial service for former President Nelson Mandela.

The service was held in front of a vociferous crowd in the FNB stadium in Johannesburg.

Among those paying tribute to Mr Mandela were US President Barack Obama, Cuba's Raul Castro and UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
