Formula One world champion Jenson Button has been given the freedom of his hometown in Somerset in recognition of his achievements.
About 3,000 fans turned out for the ceremony in Frome.
Button visited schools in the area before accepting the honour from Mayor Damon Hooton in the Cattle Market car park, by the Cheese and Grain building.
The council also plans to name a new footbridge after the 2009 world champion.
Members of Frome Town Council voted to give Button the civic honour in recognition of his achievements in the sport.
Referring to the decision to name the bridge across the River Frome after Button, Mr Hooton said in January: "The bridge is going to be built anyway so we decided it would be a good idea to name it after him."
Button was appointed MBE in the New Year's Honours list after he claimed his maiden world title with the Brawn GP team.
He currently leads the 2010 championship, having switched to McLaren.
