When Nelson Mandela danced to The Corrs in Galway (video)

He got up and held the floor on a visit in 2003. Watch here.

IN 2003, NELSON Mandela visited Ireland when we hosted the Special Olympics.

As part of his visit, he travelled to NUI Galway to receive an honorary degree.

The Corrs played at an event after the ceremony. Nelson Mandela was, quite literally, first on the dancefloor.

He rolled out his trademark dance – known as the Madiba Jive – for those in attendance.

He wasn’t alone on the dancefloor for long.

RIP Nelson Mandela.
