Former South African President Nelson Mandela is said to be “doing well” but remains in hospital for a second night where he was admitted on Saturday.
The BBC reports that Presidential spokesman Mac Maharaj said Mandela would undergo further tests for an undisclosed condition.
On Sunday, Mandela, 94, was visited by President Jacob Zuma, who said he was looking well after a restful night.
News of the hospital stay has prompted much concern in South Africa.
However, Maharaj said Mandela was "comfortable" and there was "no cause for alarm".
The former president is revered at home and around the world for leading the struggle against white-minority rule before becoming South Africa's first black president in 1994.
