Yo-Yo Ma has been awarded this year's Polar Music Prize, Sweden's most prestigious music award. The cellist shared the prize with singer-songwriter Paul Simon. The two musicians each receive SEK1m (£90,000).

The Polar Music Prize was founded in 1989 by Stig Anderson, who managed the pop group ABBA. The annual award is typically shared between a classical artist and a pop musician. Previous winners include the Kronos Quartet, Isaac Stern and Mstislav Rostropovich.
