"I'm going to try not to get emotional, because I am the sum total of everyone I've ever met and I'm lucky to absorb some of it," Mr Stallone told the star-studded event, before thanking his wife and three daughters for their support.

"I want to thank my imaginary friend, Rocky Balboa, for being the best friend I ever had," he added.

Creed is the seventh installment in the boxing film franchise.
