UFC superstar Conor McGregor was the picture of happiness as he received the Key to the City of Miami.
McGregor and his family have made the States their home away from home as the MMA legend continues his recovery from his horrific broken leg.
Miami, Florida, has been the latest port of call for McGregor, who was bestowed a rarely-given honour by Mayor Francis X. Suarez.
The Notorious shared a series of snaps from the event, which he attended with his family, to his Instagram page.
He wrote: "The Mac with The Key to The City of Miami!
"Thank you Mayor Suarez for bestowing this great honour upon me and with my family present to witness.
"A very proud moment for me in my life. Thank you! Your hospitality and care for my family and team will be forever remembered.
"God Bless you and this great city! May the spirit of Miami live within us all."

The former two-division champion's receiving of the Key to the City came the day after he sent kids at Mater Academy Charter Middle/High School into a state of pandemonium.
McGregor, 33, posed for photos with a number of students and gave them some words of wisdom.
He said: "Find what you're passionate about and go down that route at 100 miles an hour."
McGregor, Ireland's first UFC champion, is making a faster-than-expected recovery from his fractured tibia and fibula.
But UFC chief Dana White won't rush The Notorious back into action, saying: “This kid needs to heal up.
Thank you Mayor Suarez for bestowing this great honour upon me and with my family present to witness.
“I don’t know how fast that leg is going to recover.
“It’s basically going to be all about when can he start kicking again and, more importantly, when can he start taking kicks again.
“That will determine when he fights again.”
Despite being on the road to a rapid return, McGregor admits he's struggled mentally.
He told YouTuber Adam Glynn: “I was upset for a little while. It has not been easy, you know what I mean?
“There’s been a few ups and downs on this [journey].
“It’s probably one of the wildest things that’s ever happened to me in my life. Know what I mean?
“It’s not been full smooth sailing, but I’ve got through. I’ve had my family and my close team by my side.
“And we’re getting there. Still a long away [to go].”
