Roma legend Francesco Totti was named as the recipient of the prestigious Exceptional Achievement Award by the Laureus Academy.
Totti, who retired in May after a 25-year playing career with his boyhood club, is just the second person ever to receive the prize. He follows in the footsteps of the most-decorated Olympian of all-time, swimmer Michael Phelps.

Thank you to everyone for this fantastic evening, the first one I have been able to attend. I hope to help with this cause in future, and attend this event again in future. Thanks again to everyone.
