One of the most prestigious prizes in mathematics, the Fields Medal, has been handed out at a ceremony in Brazil.
Caucher Birkar, Alessio Figalli and Peter Scholze, and Akshay Venkatesh are all honoured for major contributions to their respective areas in mathematics.
Professor Birkar, a Kurd, came to the UK as a while studying in Tehran and applied for asylum.
The University of Cambridge mathematician said he "couldn't imagine that this would come true".
and then this.
