Former president Nelson Mandela remained under doctor's care for pneumonia on Thursday morning.

An update on the world-renowned political figure's recovery has customarily been released later in the day, but presidency spokesman Mac Maharaj said the statement from Wednesday still applied.

In that statement, doctors said the 94-year-old continued to respond satisfactorily to treatment. He had been visited by family and continued to make steady progress.

He was much better now than when he was admitted to hospital before midnight on Wednesday March 27, the presidency reported.
