No Nobel Prize for literature will be given this year, following a scandal over sexual misconduct allegations that has seen a string of board members resign from the board of the Swedish Academy that awards it, the Nobel Foundation said on Friday.

The foundation said in a statement the intention was to award the 2018 prize next year, along with that year's prize.
