The gold medal was sold for a record $103.5m (£84.5m). Muratov was awarded the prize in October 2021 for helping found the independent Russian newspaper Novaya Gazeta. He was the editor-in-chief when it was closed amid a Kremlin clampdown on journalists and public dissent as the country invaded Ukraine.
