Degree for Valentino Rossi angers Italy's academics

Degree for grand prix winner angers Italy's academics

Having just been awarded an honorary university degree, the 26-year-old felt entitled to put on his new hat last weekend.

But the decision - and the prominently displayed emblem - led yesterday to demands for an end to the liberal distribution of honorary awards, which, critics say, have been completely devalued.
