It was meant to be a tribute to one of the most inspiring figures of the 20th century.

A merchant from India paid for a roadside billboard – one of many memorials across the country – to honour Nelson Mandela.

But he was left red-faced when it emerged the advert carried a photo of actor Morgan Freeman, instead of the anti-apartheid hero.

Freeman played Mandela, who died on December 5, in the 2009 film Invictus.

Mr Chandrashekhar, the cloth merchant behind the billboard, said the designer had made a mistake.

“We will replace it with the correct picture of Mandela,” the merchant told AFP.
