American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan has said he will "of course" accept the Nobel Prize after two weeks of silence.
The legendary American singer accepted the Nobel Prize for literature awarded earlier this month, according to the Swedish Academy said in a statement published Friday.
"If I accept the prize? Of course," Dylan told Sara Danius, permanent secretary of the Swedish Academy, over the phone.
"The news about the Nobel Prize left me speechless. I appreciate the honor so much," he added.
The Nobel Prize Committee said: "It has not yet been decided if Bob Dylan will attend any events during the Nobel Week in Stockholm."
However, it added it would share the information "as soon as it is available."
