Wife of former president Nelson Mandela, Graca Machel issued a message of thanks to all those that have supported the family through a difficult time ever since Mandela was admitted into hospital.

"So much love and generosity from South Africans, Africans across the continent, and thousands more from across the world, have come our way to lighten the burden of anxiety; bringing us love, comfort and hope.

Mandela was admitted into  hospital on 8 June for a recurring lung infection.

" Our gratitude is difficult to express. But the love and peace we feel give yet more life to the simple "Thank you!" , " said Nelson Mandela's third wife.
