Anglican Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu arrived at the state funeral in Qunu of former president Nelson Mandela moments before the coffin did on Sunday morning.

The coffin was carried into the venue as the hymn "Lizalis' idinga lakho (Fulfil your promise)" was performed by a choir.

Shortly before, smiling and wearing purples robes, Tutu took his seat among other distinguished guests.

Tutu was initially not going to attend the funeral.
