Public sends well wishes to Desmond Tutu in hospital
Nearly a month after greeting the World Cup-winning Springboks during their Cape Town victory parade, Desmond Tutu's health has again landed him in hospital.
On Wednesday, the Desmond and Leah Tutu Foundation confirmed that the Nobel Laurette is again battling a similar infection to those that have repeatedly landed him in hospital over the years.
As usual, there's been an outpouring of love and well-wishes for the 88-year-old 'Arch'.

Tutu celebrated his 88th birthday, with family and friends at home, in October.
Last year, he spent his birthday in hospital for a series of tests.
The Nobel Peace Prize winner was diagnosed with prostate cancer in 1997 for which he was successfully treated.
