‘The little black fella’

From a review of the English, former professonal footballer Paul Merson’s new autobiography (his second) which is full of his exploits with drink and gambling:

In South Africa we were introduced to to this little black fella with grey hair. ‘Who’s that?’ I asked Kenny Sansom [his Arsenal teammate]. ‘It’s Nelson Mandela, Merse. He’s one of the most famous people in the world.’
