Cohen awarded top Spanish gong

Leonard Cohen has won one of Spain's prestigious Prince of Asturias awards for his poetic gifts and thought-provoking songs.

The prize foundation said it was awarding the Canadian star its Letters prize, praising him as one of the most influential authors of modern times.

The foundation said: "His poems and songs explore with depth and beauty the major questions concerning humanity."

Cohen, 76, is famous for songs such as Suzanne and So Long, Marianne.

The award is one of eight the foundation gives each year. They range from the arts and humanities to scientific research.

The prizes are presented by Crown Prince Felipe in the northern city of Oviedo, capital of the Asturias region.
