The 94-year-old anti-apartheid leader was sent to hospital on Thursday for a recurring lung problem. Boateng met the influential political leader during the 2010 FIFA World Cup finals when the Black Stars visited Mandela at his residence. Boateng posted a picture of him shaking Mandela’s hands and wrote on his official Twitter account: “Get well soon Nelson Mandela.” In a statement released by South African president Jacob Zuma’s office said the ex-leader was “responding positively” to treatment.
