Greste was honoured alongside his two Al Jazeera colleagues, Baher Mohamed and Mohamed Fahmy, who watched a live broadcast of the London ceremony from Cairo.

The three were arrested in December 2013 and later jailed on charges of terrorism and spreading false news.  Greste was released from the Egyptian Jail on 1 February, after 400 days in prison.
