The death of Nelson Mandela has attracted sympathy and caused sorrow all over the world.
However, when a famous person dies, it is common to find people who make astounding mistakes about the person’s identity and what he did while he was alive.
Below are some of such blunders – some of which (we most certainly hope) are evidently spoofs:
