  Nelson Mandela in London
by easyoar

Nelson Mandela is probably one of the few people who needs no introduction wherever he goes in the world. He is also probably unique in that he is almost always regarded positively by people too (it's easy to be well known for being bad after all!).

Just in case you don't know, Nelson Mandela was inprisoned for decades (27 years) in South Africa during the Apartheid years. He was later released and went on to lead the country and then be awarded the Nobel Peace prize in 1993.

This statue is titled "The Struggle is my life" and is located outside of the Royal Festival Hall on the South Bank of the Thames.
