Former South African president Nelson Mandela will not attend the opening ceremony of the World Cup today after his great-granddaughter was killed in a car crash.
Zenani Mandela was killed while returning home by car from the World Cup concert in Soweto last night.
The car flipped over on a motorway in central Johannesburg just after midnight. No-one else was injured, the Nelson Mandela Foundation said.
Mr Mandela's former wife Winnie Madikizela-Mandela was treated in hospital for shock after being informed of the tragedy.
A family relative who was driving the car has been arrested and may be charged with homicide.
Police say he was drunk at the time of the crash.

Erm, before we all go round praising mandela, wherever there is power there is corruption: Who set up winnie to run the arms deals who set up winnies team to run the drugs and lets not forget the blood on their hands of the kidnapping and executions. Whilst all of this was being carried out by winnie, I wonder how much blood was spilt in his name?
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, Who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”
