English tennis player and two times wimbeldon champion andy murray was dubbed by prince charles in the buckingham palace in the recognition to his services in tennis and charity. he recived his knighthood from prince charles on thursday, after more than 2 years he was awarded with honour from queen elisabeth II.
the knighthood was announced the queens list in 2016 when andy murray won his second wimbeldon championship title, retained his olympic singles crown and finished at the no.1 position in the world rankings. Recipients are allowed to choose when to collect their honor, and the delay was due to a combination of Murray’s hectic schedule and the effect of the knighthood ceremony on his career-threatening hip problem.
Murray announced during a tearful news conference at the Australian Open in January that he plans to retire after Wimbledon this year due to the pain in the joint.
After Thursday’s ceremony, Murray issued a statement 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.”
Murray and his wife Kim are parents of 3-year-old Sophia Olivia and 18-month-old Edie.
