Mandela, 94, is recovering from pneumonia in hospital, his third stay in the last four months. Mandela's lungs were damaged when he contracted tuberculosis during his 27 years in the infamous Robben Island prison. Mandela became the nation's first democratically elected president in 1994 following the end of apartheid. (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)
