Fish Hoek , Cape Town, has been the scene of  great excitement as President Obama landed on the sportsfields en route to the Desmond Tutu HIV Center in Masiphumelele.

It is now 17:23. A South African army helicopter has just landed on the Fish Hoek sportsfields, where two USA helicopters are still waiting. A small crowd has been allowed closer access to the fields.

The photos below were taken earlier this afternoon from a different camera. Please send you photos to add to the gallery!
