Nelson Mandela Now Looks Thin And Fragile (LOOK)

Nelson Mandela is 'in good shape' and 'good spirits', South African president Jacob Zuma said today.
He spoke as the first footage emerged of the 94-year-old former president since he left hospital on April 6 after suffering from pneumonia.
He spent 10 days in hospital being treated for the illness, which followed an earlier hospitalisation in December when he developed a lung infection and gallstones. See pictures below:

While with Mandela, Zuma jokes and laughs with two officials of the governing African National Congress, some Mandela family members and the former president's medical team, but Mandela stares straight ahead.
One of his grandsons cries 'Smile, smile,' as he takes a picture on his mobile phone. He attempts a weak smile but, as the flash goes off, he closes his eyes and purses his lips. He doesn't look strong at all.
The Nobel Peace laureate was imprisoned for 27 years during the apartheid era became the first democratically elected president of South Africa in 1994. God heal Mandela...
