- Story Text: Robbie Williams hit the red carpet in Berlin on Thursday (November 17) for the annual Bambi awards.
The prize-winner in the "International Music" category was in attendance at the glitzy ceremony, which awards Germany's most coveted media prizes.
Rock star Sting was also on the red carpet ahead of performing at the 68th annual event.
The well-known golden Bambi trophies are handed out to media personalities, films and television programmes each year, with further prizes for sports, fashion and social engagement.
This year's accolades include one for "Integration" awarded to the coach of Germany's national football team, Joachim Loew.
"We have various players with different backgrounds, different religions, and it works really well. I'm pleased that we are being seen as a good example of integration. And so we are proud to get a prize," he told Reuters.
The Bambi Awards have been awarded every year since 1948 to "people with vision and creativity, whose outstanding successes and achievements have been reported in the media."
