Nelson Mandela would have turned 100 today. He said that sport has the power to change the world – and he was right. Let’s keep playing. // @NelsonMandela completaria 100 anos hoje. Ele disse que o esporte tem o poder de mudar o mundo – e ele tinha razão. Vamos continuar jogando. pic.twitter.com/1bzakqI7tX

I agree with @BarackObama‘s #MandelaLecture during the #Mandela100 celebrations, although he should have delivered it in Kenya. FACTS are stubborn and JUSTICE is supreme. We cannot reconcile with election thieves and mass murderers. We must remove them. https://t.co/RFK5F4ooZz

Humbled by a warm reception at the UN Headquarters as I gave my address in commemoration of the Nelson Mandela International Day and also, #Mandela100 birthday.
Madiba taught us how to be humane. His formal education included a law degree but he was about practical solutions. pic.twitter.com/KzG5W8Sie8
