My sweet award; Sporting legend Sir Jackie flies in to accept Hall of Fame accolade.
And Jackie, who said he was "fighting fit" following an operation for skin cancer, picked up an award for being one of the 50 greatest Scots sportsmen and women.
Jackie shared a joke with footballing great Denis Law, who also features in the elite list.
Law joked that he looked "like a tramp" next to Sir Jackie, but added: "It is a marvellous idea. Scottish people are so proud of their sporting achievements."
Celtic hero Jimmy Johnstone joked that Denis, at 62, did indeed resemble a museum piece. The Hall of Fame 50, who will feature in an exhibition at the Royal Museum in Edinburgh next year, are:
