Professor Stephen Hawking has presented the triumphing University Challenge team with their memento – and disclosed he is a long-time devotee of the evidence.

Oxford’s Balliol College lash Wolfson College, Cambridge, by 190 to 140 in the final of the BBC Two evidence.

The series was a hit on social media, in big portion due to fan favourite Eric Monkman, who captained Wolfson.

Despite his team’s loss some took to Twitter to describe the 29 -year-old as the “people’s champion”.

Host Jeremy Paxman told Wolfson “theyve been” “entertaining”.
