Children dance and celebrate as people wave a banner of Nelson Mandela to celebrate his 95th birthday outside the Mediclinic Heart Hospital where he is being treated on July 18, 2013 in Pretoria, South Africa. The South African presidency has said that Mandela's health is 'steadily improving', as the anti-apartheid icon spends his 95th birthday in hospital. Children in schools across the country have started off Mandela Day by singing 'Happy Birthday' to him.
