Soul singer Sampha has been awarded the 2017 Hyundai Mercury Prize for his mournful and intimate album, Process.

The singer, who for a long time was better known as a guest vocalist on other people's records, beat Ed Sheeran and Stormzy to win the £25,000 prize.

"I feel like I'm dreaming!" said the South London singer, before thanking his parents for giving him and his family "the best upbringing possible".

His album ruminates on the grief he felt after his mother died of cancer.
