Facebook timeline tribute to amazing Mandela

A FACEBOOK page has been created, tracking the amazing life of former South African president Nelson Mandela through an amazing timeline.

It was announced today that Mr Mandela  had died, aged 95.

It is not immediately clear whether the page was created by Facebook or a third party but  it is an amazing tribute to the one of the greatest political figures the world has known.

Titled The Long Walk of Nelson Mandela, it offers a timeline back to 1925, where it tells of his childhood, and carries on through his arrest and jail time, his release from prison and his rise to become the first black president of South Africa and beyond.
