The Russian editor-in-chief of the independent newspaper Novaya Gazeta has auctioned off his Nobel Peace Prize medal for $103.5m (£84m).

Dmitry Muratov told the BBC all the money from the sale would go to help refugees from the war in Ukraine.

Muratov was co-awarded the peace prize in 2021 for defending freedom of expression in Russia.

Heritage Auctions, which conducted the sale, has not revealed who the winning bidder was.
