Archbishop Desmond Tutu has died at the age of 90.
His death was confirmed by South African President Cyril Ramaphosa on Sunday.
Tutu, the first black archbishop of Cape Town, is credited to have helped lead the movement that ended the brutal regime of white minority rule in South Africa.
He played a key role in the country’s transition from the apartheid era, including serving as chairman of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission at the direction of then-President Nelson Mandela.
He received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1984 for his efforts to end apartheid, and was the last surviving South African Nobel laureate.
