American songwriter, singer, painter, and writer, Bob Dylan has accepted his Nobel Prize for literature, more than three months after the awards ceremony, Swedish media report.

According to sources, Dylan received his medal at a private event in Stockholm before a scheduled concert in the city.

No further details were given.

Swedish Academy officials previously said Dylan would not deliver his Nobel lecture, a traditional condition of receiving the 8m kroner ($900,000, £727,000) prize money, at the event.

He is expected to deliver a taped version of the lecture later.

If he does not deliver a lecture by June, he will have to forfeit the prize money.

A member of the Swedish Academy, which awards the prize, told the Associated Press news agency “it went very well indeed”, and that 75-year-old Dylan was “a very nice, kind man”.
