Former South African President Nelson Mandela is said to be "comfortable" and "breathing without difficulty."

A statement from the South African Presidency said Mandela was hospitalized this week due to a recurrence of pneumonia and had excess fluid that built up around his lungs drained. 

His grandson says that he is sitting up in bed and talking and Winnie Mandela says her former husband is well and she thanked President Obama for his words of support.
