South Africa’s captain Neil Tovey hoists the African Nations Cup trophy in the air after it was presented to him by President Nelson Mandela, right, following South Africa’s 2-0 win over Tunisia in the final match in Johannesburg. “Sport can create hope, where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination,” Mandela said. South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma said, Thursday, Dec. 5, 2013, that Mandela has died. He was 95. (AP Photo/Cobus Bodenstein, File)
