Sir Bobby already has the Freedom of Newcastle
Former England manager Sir Bobby Robson has been made an Honorary Freeman of the City of Durham.
At a full council meeting, the Mayor of Durham bestowed the civic honour on the 75-year-old in recognition of his services to sport and charity.
Sir Bobby, who grew up at Langley Park on the outskirts of Durham and managed England and Newcastle, is fighting cancer for the fifth time.
The ceremony, followed by a procession, took place on Monday.
The Sir Bobby Robson Foundation was established in March and is raising funds for a state-of-the-art cancer research centre.
In November, it was announced that the charity had reached the £1m mark.
Sir Bobby was awarded the Freedom of Newcastle in 2005.
