Sir Andy Murray receives knighthood at Buckingham Palace

 Sir Andy Murray has received 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 Wimbelding win and second Olympic gold.

Sir Andy said he was very proud to receive the honour.The 32-year-old added: It's a nice day to spend with my family - my wife and parents are here.

He said he would like to have brought his children to the ceremony, but felt that three-year-old Sophia Olivia and 18-month-old Edie were too young.

"I'll show them the medal when I get home," he said.
