Tens of thousands of mourners are expected in Johannesburg for a memorial service for Nelson Mandela.

US President Barack Obama and the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will be among those paying tribute.

The service will be held at the 90,000 capacity FNB stadium, where Mandela made his last public appearance. It will also be shown on big screens at three "overflow" stadiums.

Three former US presidents, George W Bush, Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, will also be there.
