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 Wimbledon win and second Olympic gold.
Speaking at the time, the 32-year-old said being known as a sir “sounds a bit strange” but welcomed “the big honour”.
Sir Andy plans to retire after this year’s Wimbledon because of injury.
However, it is still unclear if the former world number one will make the tournament in London as he continues his rehabilitation following a successful hip surgery.
Sir Andy has said he feels no pressure to return to the game while his mother Judy said her son was “cautiously optimistic” about returning to action.
The Dunblane tennis star collected the award at an investiture ceremony conducted by the Prince of Wales, alongside novelist Sir Philip Pullman, who will be knighted for his services to literature.
Broadcaster Chris Packham will also be 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.
