Nelson Mandela’s grandson says South Africa’s former president will greet fans at the World Cup final on Sunday. Mandla Mandela says his 91-year-old grandfather will make a brief appearance before the game Sunday and then watch the final from home.

The anti-apartheid icon has kept a low profile during the monthlong tournament, having decided against attending the opening game on June 11 following the death of his great granddaughter in a traffic accident coming home from a kickoff concert. FIFA had not announced who will present the trophy to either Spain or the Netherlands at Soccer City in Johannesburg.
