US President Donald Trump is to award superstar Tiger Woods with the Presidential Medal of Freedom.

Woods won his fifth Masters title at Augusta with many saying it's the greatest sporting comeback ever .

A series on back problems and well publicised personal issues meant it was his first win at the tournament for 14 years.

Now Trump has had his say - and wants to make sure the 43-year-old is rightly honoured.

He tweeted: "Spoke to @TigerWoods to congratulate him on the great victory he had in yesterday's @TheMasters, & to inform him that because of his incredible Success & Comeback in Sports (Golf) and, more importantly, LIFE, I will be presenting him with the PRESIDENTIAL MEDAL OF FREEDOM!"

Trump and Woods have known each other for a number of years

The achievement hasn't gone unnoticed by legendary Jack Nicklaus.

He claimed he was “shaking in my boots” after Woods' magical 15th Major triumph.

Now he record of 18 is under threat - and he may even be able to do it by the end of the year.

Nicklaus admitted: “I felt for a long time he was going to win again. And the next two Majors are at Bethpage, where he’s won [2002 US Open], and Pebble Beach, where he’s won [2000 US Open]. So he’s got me shaking in my boots, guys.

“If Tiger is healthy, he didn’t need to worry about his driver.

"He never drove the ball straight anyway. He’s such a great putter, he has such a great short game, he has such distance control with his irons.

"He has unbelievable distance control, the best I’ve ever seen of anybody in the game."

The golfing great soaks up his big moment

EastEnders' Dot Cotton actress June Brown refuses to give up booze and smoking aged 92

June Brown has said the secret to a happy life is to “do exactly what you damn well please”.

Aged 92, the EastEnders actress, known to millions as Dot Branning, refuses to give up boozing, smoking and eating food she enjoys.

June said: “I’m going to die of something fairly soon, so why not enjoy myself?

“I love red wine and also dark chocolate...

“And the Guinness helps me keep a bit of weight on. So I don’t need to be careful about what I eat or drink.

“What’s the point of counting how many cigarettes I smoke a day? I’ve been on them for over 70 years. I did try one of those new electronic cigarettes, but it was so heavy it kept falling out of my mouth – so that went in the bin.”

Just like her character Dot, June is a smoker

Earlier this month, June told the Mirror she is losing her eyesight and is already struggling to “go out socially” because of her vision.

She has suffered from macular degeneration for 10 years.

Speaking to the Radio Times, June also said she was now completely deaf in her right ear after ­lightning hit her house and caused a plug to explode with an “almighty bang”.

And the soap star revealed she relaxes by watching Sir David Attenborough wildlife documentaries.

EastEnders tipped for death twist as Phil and Keanu attacked trying to save Louise

EastEnders’ Phil Mitchell finds himself in a race against time next week to save daughter Louise as she’s kidnapped.

Phil and son Ben race to the docks after she’s abducted, and held in a shipping container.

Keanu Taylor also tracks her down to save her, only to be knocked unconscious leaving him also in danger.

Phil quickly works out that his acquaintance, Walford villain Danny, is likely to be behind the incident.

Phil and Ben battle to save Louise when she's kidnapped

Louise was bundled into a car by Midge, witnessed by Keanu, but after he too is attacked it’s up to father and son to find them.

When they reach the docks, Phil tells Ben to stay put as he tracks down Danny.

But there’s more horror in store, when Phil is also attacked.

Keanu is attacked as he vows to save Louise

With him and Ben searching the docks for Louise, with both Midge and Danny out to get them, Phil takes matters into his own hands.

Phil leaves Danny a threatening message, but it’s not long before he too is attacked, whacked from behind.

It looks as though it’s up to Ben to find his loved ones before it’s too late, as dramatic scenes unfold.

But will Ben find Louise and his dad in time, and what exactly does Danny have planned?

EastEnders viewers will have to tune into the soap all next week to see how far things go, and if everyone makes it out alive.
