President Jacob Zuma's office said in a statement Thursday that he received the update from the medical team that is treating the 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader at a Pretoria hospital.
Zuma, who visited Mandela on Thursday, said in the statement that the former president is "much better" than when Zuma visited him on the previous night.
