The Nobel Committee said he was awarded it for "his extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and co-operation between peoples".
There were a record 205 nominations for this year's prize.
The laureate - chosen by a five-member committee - wins a gold medal, a diploma and 10m Swedish kronor ($1.4m).
Do you think he deserves it?

He was nominated TWO WEEKS after being sworn in. What did he do his first 14 days in office? Let's see, um, he apologized to anyone who would sit still. The committee also said they awarded it for his "attempts to limit nukes". Well, then President Ford should have gotten the prize for actually doing something. Have you ever heard of SALT. BO gave a speech and got the prize. Ford brought the arms limitation treaty talks to fruition and got it signed by the USSR and he got laughed at. What a joke.
