When David Beckham visited Nelson Mandela some years ago, a British newspaper covered the summit in this fashion:

“One is an icon of his generation, adored by millions across the globe, who has brought hope to his nation where once there was despair. The other is Nelson Mandela.”

From Frank Deford’s SI article here.
