Posted at 1:05PM Thursday 11 Oct 2012

Chinese author Mo Yan has become the first Chinese author ever to win the Nobel prize in literature.

The Swedish Academy, announcing his win this lunchtime, said that "with hallucinatory realism", Mo Yan "merges folktales, history and the contemporary". His win makes him the first Chinese writer to win the Nobel in its 111-year history.
