World honors Mandela as champion of freedom and reconciliation

(Reuters) - Nelson Mandela was hailed on Thursday as a champion of reconciliation who "achieved more than could be expected of any man," as people the world over mourned his death and celebrated his triumphant fight against apartheid in South Africa. "Today he's gone home, and we've lost one of the most influential, courageous and profoundly good human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth," U.S. President Barack Obama said of Mandela, who became South Africa's first black president. "He achieved more than could be expected of any man," said Obama, who is expected to go to South Africa for Mandela's state funeral. "Nelson Mandela was a hero of our time," British Prime Minister David Cameron wrote on Twitter.
