I’ll remember him as Madiba, truly an unconquerable soul.” The former UN secretary general Kofi Annan said: “I’ve lost a dear friend. Nelson Mandela stands as a dear friend to us all.” The Prince William, in the UK, appreciated that “(Mandela) was an extraordinary and inspiring man. This is extremely sad and tragic news.” Oprah Winfrey expressed her feelings saying: “He will always be my hero. His life was a gift to us all.” Not the last in importance, the actor Morgan Freeman, who portrayed Nelson Mandela in ‘Invicus’, said in this moment: “As we remember his triumphs, let us, in his memory, not just reflect on how far we’ve come, but on how far we have to go.”
