Johannesburg - President Jacob Zuma met with the doctors treating former president Nelson Mandela, the presidency said on Tuesday.

"President Jacob Zuma met with the medical team that is treating Mandela on Monday night, and they gave him a thorough briefing," spokesperson Mac Maharaj said in a statement.

"President Zuma has full confidence in the medical team, and is satisfied that they are doing their best to make Madiba better."

Mandela was still in a "serious but stable" condition in a Pretoria hospital.

Maharaj dismissed media reports that Zuma would visit Mandela on Tuesday.

"That is incorrect. The president is in Cape Town preparing for the budget vote of the presidency," he said.

On Saturday, the presidency announced that Mandela had been admitted to hospital in the early hours of the morning.

On Monday, the presidency said Mandela's condition was "unchanged" from Saturday and that he was receiving intensive care.

This was the third time this year the Nobel Peace Prize laureate had been in hospital.

At the end of March and in April this year, he spent nine days in hospital receiving treatment for recurring lung problems.

Earlier in March, he was admitted to a Pretoria hospital for a scheduled check-up and discharged the following day.
