Breaking News image

Bob Dylan will finally accept his Nobel Prize for Literature in Stockholm this weekend, the academy has announced.

The American singer was awarded the prize in October but failed to travel to pick up the award, or deliver the lecture that is required to receive the 8m kroner ($910,000) prize.

The academy said it would meet Dylan in the Swedish capital, where he is giving two concerts.

He will not deliver a lecture, but is expected to send a taped version.
