Sir Andy Murray has collected his knighthood at Buckingham Palace, more than two years after he was awarded the honour.
The three-time Grand Slam champion was named in the Queen’s New Years Honours in 2016, following his second Wimbledon win and second Olympic gold.
The tennis ace said he wished his two young daughters had been old enough to see him receive his knighthood from the Prince of Wales.
He issued a brief statement about the knighthood after the ceremony, saying: “I’m very proud to receive it. 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.”
Sir Andy collected his award at an investiture ceremony conducted by the Prince of Wales, alongside Sir Philip Pullman, who was knighted for his services to literature.
Broadcaster Chris Packham has also been awarded a CBE for services to nature conservation.
The BBC Springwatch presenter said the honour was a “silent thanks” from the animals he has defended, after he was named on the New Years Honours list in 2018.
