Bob Dylan will not travel to Sweden to receive his Nobel Prize for Literature in person, it has been announced, the BBC said.

The Swedish Academy, which awards the Nobel prizes, said it had received “a personal letter” saying he was unable to attend next month’s Nobel ceremony “due to pre-existing commitments”.

Dylan, the organisation said, felt “very honoured” and wished he could receive the prize personally, the BBC added.

The singer is required to give a Nobel lecture between now and next June.
