Nelson Mandela 'leaving hospital' in South Africa
South African former President Nelson Mandela is being discharged from a hospital where he spent two nights, a senior police source has told the BBC.
Mr Mandela, 92, is said to be in good health. He had flown from Cape Town to Johannesburg on Wednesday for what the government described as "specialised" tests.
The move prompted renewed speculation about the former leader's frail health.
Friends and family visited him amid tight security on Thursday.
The senior police officer said a convoy of vehicles was at the rear entrance of Milpark Hospital in Johannesburg, preparing to take Mr Mandela to his home in the suburb of Houghton.The South African liberation hero - known affectionately among South Africans by his clan name, Madiba - has seemed increasingly frail on his infrequent public appearances since retiring from public life in 2004
