Nelson Mandela had the ability to inspire all who heard his story, even inspirational figures and leading global stars.

The anti-apartheid leader, former South African president and Nobel Peace Prize winner died on Thursday at the age of 95, prompting a vast outpouring of tributes from the world's best-known athletes and top sporting bodies.


In paying tribute to Mandela Jamaica's Usain Bolt described him as "One of the greatest human beings ever ... . The worlds greatest fighter", Bolt said.

Yesterday the fastest man in the world, in a seemingly reflective moment, compared his years alive to the amount of years Mandela spent in prison.

He tweeted:





Muhammad Ali, himself a role model for so many, said Mandela inspired others to "reach for what appeared to be impossible."

"What I will remember most about Mr. Mandela is that he was a man whose heart, soul and spirit could not be contained or restrained by racial and economic injustices, metal bars or the burden of hate and revenge," Ali said in a statement through his foundation.

Pele wrote, "He was my hero, my friend."

Tiger Woods called his meeting with Mandela in 1998 "inspiring times."

"It's sad for everyone who got a chance to not only meet him, but I've been influenced by him," Woods said.

The NBA's LeBron James said: "In his 95 years, he was able to do unbelievable things not only for South Africa but for the whole world."
