Beatles legend Paul McCartney received a standing ovation at the NME awards ceremony in London yesterday, where he accepted the influential British magazine's special prize honouring his 50-year-career.

On receiving the magazine's "songwriters' songwriter" award at the annual show, the 71-year-old admitted to guests at the O2 Academy Brixton that he could not explain how he had written some of the most famous pop songs of all time.

The Beatles played at the magazine's annual show in 1963 and topped the bill in 1964 as Beatlemania swept the UK.
