JOHANNESBURG, April 4 (Reuters) - Former South African president Nelson Mandela, 94, received a visit in hospital from current leader Jacob Zuma on Thursday, who said the anti-apartheid hero was making "continuous improvement" from pneumonia.

"Madiba is stable and we are thankful that he is responding well to treatment and that he is much better," Zuma said, referring to Mandela by his clan name.

Mandela has spent just over a week in hospital.
