Three scientists have been awarded the 2020 Nobel Prize in Physics for work to understand black holes.

Sir Roger Penrose, Reinhard Genzel and Andrea Ghez were announced as this year's winners at a news conference in Stockholm.

The winners will share the prize money of 10 million krona (£864,200).

David Haviland, chair of the physics prize committee, said this year's award "celebrates one of the most exotic objects in the Universe".
