London, Nov 2: One of the world's best-known physicists, Stephen Hawking, has joked about Brexit being even more complicated than some of the toughest mathematical questions.

The 74-year-old made the remark during an acceptance speech at the annual Pride of Britain Awards in London on Monday night as he was handed his trophy by Prime Minister Theresa May.

Hawking also revealed his prediction for the future – a robot world where future generations battle climate change. The author of 'A Brief History of Time' said, "There are a lot of children here and I would like to speak about what the future will be like when they are older.

"They have many things to look forward to such as the development of robots, driverless cars and computers that will win every game you play. "They will also face many challenges such as climate change and the effect that this will have on the world.

I am sure the next generation will rise to these challenges," he said. He also revealed that he had not given up on his "greatest ambition" to undertake a flight into space.
