Sir Andy Murray is officially knighted

Tennis star Andy Murray is a two-time Wimbledon champion, a two-time Olympic champion, a U.S. Open champion, and a former world number one.

Now he’s also a knight.

Sir Andy Murray, currently off the tennis tour recovering from hip surgery, was officially knighted on Thursday by Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace.

The recognition was given to Murray for his services to tennis and charity. The Brit has also earned an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (OBE) medal from HRH Prince William, Duke of Cambridge, in October 2013 after winning his first Wimbledon crown.

“I’m very proud to receive it. It’s a nice day to spend with my family; my wife and parents are here,” Murray said in a statement. “‘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.”
