Woody Allen's son named as Rhodes scholar


Ronan Farrow, the biological son of the director Woody Allen and actress Mia Farrow, has been named a Rhodes scholar and will study for a year at Oxford.

Mr Farrow, 23, has been working as a US State Department special adviser on global youth issues.

The former child prodigy, who was accepted at Yale Law School at the age of 16, became the subject of a custody battle between his parents after Allen's relationship with Mia Farrow's adopted daughter, Soon-Yi, was revealed.
