    The Your Song hitmaker was presented with a humanitarian award recognising his career and advocacy work to end HIV and Aids.

    The National Humanities Medal recognised his years-long efforts to end HIV and AIDS through the Elton John AIDS Foundation, which he launched in 1992.

    The organisation has sinced raised more than $600m (£553m) to fund efforts to combat the AIDS pandemic in four continents.

    Elton said: “I’m never flabbergasted, but I’m flabbergasted, and humbled, and honoured.

    “It will make me double my efforts to make sure this disease goes away.”
