Controversial golfing figure Tiger Woods has been awarded the US’ highest civilian honour – the Presidential Medal of Freedom.
Donald Trump, a keen golfer and owner of several courses, presented the medal on Monday evening in the White House’s Rose Garden.
The Medal of Freedom is awarded to those who have made a significant contribution to the security or national interest of the US, towards world peace, culture or other significant action.
Mr Trump announced he would be awarding it to Woods in a tweet after the golfer made a victorious comeback when he won the Masters last month.
At the time the President said: “Spoke to @TigerWoods to congratulate him on the great victory he had in yesterday’s @TheMasters, & to inform him that because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE, I will be presenting him with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM!”
