Archbishop DESMOND TUTU has praised the decision to award US President BARACK OBAMA the Nobel Peace Prize.
TUTU says it's a very imaginative and somewhat surprising choice .. but wonderful.
He says OBAMA has had a very significant impact and his presidency has changed the temperature and almost everybody feels a little more hopeful about the world.
TUTU won the Nobel prize in 1984 for his long battle for a non-violent end to South Africa's apartheid system of racial segregation.
