After taking the lead at the Monaco Grand Prix on Sunday in what he has described as "the highlight of my career and probably the rest of my life", racing star Lewis Hamilton was in line for some royal treatment.
He received the winner's trophy from keen race fan Prince Albert and his sister Princess Caroline, both of whom shared a joke with the young star before presenting him with his prize.
Among those watching the 23-year-old drive his way to victory in Monte Carlo were P Diddy, Dannii Minogue, Boris Becker and Brigette Nielson. But the person Lewis had clearly been most keen to impress was his father Anthony. Leaping from his car immediately after finishing, Lewis - who said he was "singing his head off" during the final lap - headed straight for his biggest fan.
Despite the treacherous weather conditions and a collision early in the race, the Formula One ace fulfilled a childhood dream when he roared past the chequered flag in front of thousands of cheering fans.
