Flash mob tribute to Mandela

Since Nelson Mandela's death on Thursday tributes have been pouring in from around the world.

There have been tributes from family, friends, fellow struggle heroes and world leaders, and of course yesterday we had a memorial service at the FNB Stadium in Johannesburg.

His body is now lying in state at the main government building in Pretoria, renamed the Mandela Amphitheatre, where it will lie in state for three days.

But of all the tributes that have poured in, there has been nothing quite this.

And it has gone viral, perhaps unsurprisingly.

On Saturday an otherwise normal Woolworths store in Parkview became the scene of something a bit magical – and it has touched everyone's hearts.

A flash mob by the Soweto Gospel Choir paid tribute to South Africa's first black president.

You can see the video here. I think you'll agree that it is a fitting tribute.
