Get well wishes are pouring in for Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu who has been admitted to hospital for treatment of an infection.
Tutu has been hospitalized several times over the past few years for the treatment of a similar condition.
He was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1997.
Eighty-eight-year-old Tutu was last seen in public last month when he welcomed the victorious Springboks to Cape Town during the last day of their trophy parade.
