    UK refugee wins Fields Medal

    A Cambridge professor who won one of the most prestigious prizes in mathematics, the Fields Medal, has had his award stolen in Brazil.


    Professor Caucher Birkar, a Kurd, came to the UK as a refugee from Iran.

    The Fields Medals are awarded every four years to the most promising mathematicians under the age of 40.
