South African President Jacob Zuma will visit Nelson Mandela in hospital this morning.

The anti-apartheid legend is today celebrating his 95th birthday.

Nelson Mandela's health is "steadily improving" South Africa's presidency said in a statement today.

"Madiba remains in hospital in Pretoria, but his doctors have confirmed that his health is steadily improving," the government said in a statement, using Mandela's clan name.

President Jacob Zuma wished Mandela a "joyous" 95th birthday.

"We are proud to call this international icon our own as South Africans and wish him good health," he said in the statement. "We thank all our people for supporting Madiba throughout the hospitalisation with undying love and compassion," he added.
