Former South African president Nelson Mandela has returned home in Johannesburg after a prolonged stay in hospital.

Mandela has been hospitalised since June 8 for a recurring lung infection, sparking a wave of support from fellow South Africans and around the world. Friends who had seen him said he was on life support in the form of mechanical ventilation.

The BBC’s Mike Wooldridge in Johannesburg says it will be a relief for his family and for the nation that Mr Mandela has improved sufficiently for the journey to be made and for him to be cared for at home.

Throughout Mr Mandela’s stay in hospital, President Jacob Zuma urged the country to pray for him and keep him in their thoughts.
