Budapest has paid tribute to dishevelled detective Lieutenant Columbo by erecting a statue in honour of Peter Falk, the man who brought the classic TV character to life.
Born in New York, the late actor had Hungarian ancestry and said his great-grandfather could have been the Hungarian writer and politician Miksa Falk.
Peter Falk died in Beverly Hills at the age of 83 in 2011.
