    "It's remarkable, I'm still surprised. I wasn't quite sure if they'd got the right person, so I'm very happy to be here. It's a rare occasion," he reportedly said upon being presented with the honor.

    "I feel like a Londoner through and through actually," he added. "London is the greatest city in the world, I think."
