He deservedly picked up the award although it was an unusual prize opted for. There was no trophy or bottle of champagne, instead Odegaard was presented with a large fish at a supermarket in Donostia. Incredible scenes.

Odegaard's bizarre gift continues a trend in sport. A hockey star from Russia received an AK-47 for his role in between the sticks.
Having stopped 36 of the 38 shots he faced for Izhstal Izhevsk in their 3-2 win over Chelmet, Saveli Kononov was handed an assault rifle by a senior official.
Izhstal Izhevsk's captain passed Kononov the weapon and he paraded with the gun before giving a rousing speech to his teammates.
