Prestigious Australian Art Award, won by an Aboriginal artist

One of the most prestigious Australia's art awards has been won by an Indigenous artist for the first time in 99 years. Vincent Namatjira, 37 years old, won the Archibald Prize for a painting in which he appears alongside Adam Goodes, an Australian football player.
Mr Goodes retired from sports five years ago due to repeated racial abuse.
