Recently retired US chat show host Jay Leno is to receive this year's Mark Twain Prize for American humour.

The award, presented by the Kennedy Center, recognizes people who have had an impact on American society through their humour and social commentary.

The TV presenter retired from hosting The Tonight Show in February this year, after 22 years in the job.

He inherited the presenter's seat from the legendary Johnny Carson in 1992 and was the top-rated late-night host for years.
