Nobel Prize winner Penrose says had to get out of his shower to hear the news

LONDON, Oct 6 (Reuters) - Roger Penrose, who won the 2020 Nobel Prize for Physics for his work on black holes, said on Tuesday he had to get out of the shower to hear the news of his prize.

“It was an extreme honour and great pleasure to hear the news this morning in a slightly unusual way - I had to get out of my shower to hear it,” Penrose told reporters.
