The National Portrait Gallery has unveiled a portrait of Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai.

In 2012, Ms Yousafzai was shot in the head, neck and shoulder by a Taliban fighter while travelling home from school after writing an anonymous diary about life under the extremists.

After recovering from her near-fatal injuries, she and her family relocated to Birmingham.

In August 2017 she accepted a place to study at Lady Margaret Hall in Oxford studying politics, philosophy, and economics.
