Andy Murray officially became Sir Andy Murray today after receiving his knighthood from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.
The former world and British number one was awarded the honour back in 2016, but was still waiting to be formerly knighted.
“I’m very proud to receive it,” Sir Andy Murray said. “It’s a nice day to spend with my family – my wife and parents are here.
“I’d have liked to (have brought) my kids but I think they’re a bit young. I’ll show them the medal when I get home.”
Murray was given the honour after a stunning 2016 in which he retained his Olympic crown, won a second Wimbledon, won the BBC Sports Personality of the year, and ended the year as world number one.
