Andy Murray Honoured

October 17, 2013 by  

Andy Murray Honoured, Wimbledon champion Andy Murray arrived today at Buckingham Palace to receive an OBE, presented by the Duke of Cambridge who was hosting his first investiture ceremony.

Murray arrived at the palace with girlfriend Kim Sears and his parents Willie and Judy in a chauffeur-driven people carrier, before posing for photographs and walking inside the Queen’s official London home for the start of the ceremony.

The 26-year-old was awarded the OBE in the New Year Honours, before his historic triumph at Wimbledon, after winning the US Open and men’s tennis final at the London Olympics in 2012.

He beat Novak Djokovic in straight sets back in July to become the first British man in 77 years to win the singles title at Wimbledon.

However, the current World No. 4 tweeted earlier in the day that he was worried he was going to be late, while in the middle of a drugs test.

He later said: “They turned up at my door at 8.20am and I had a taxi booked for half past eight. I was a bit worried I was going to be late.

“It’s part of the job but when you have a day like today you are looking forward to, it’s the last thing you need.”

Prince William was presenting awards to recipients from across the UK, including an OBE to Vicar Of Dibley producer Jon Plowman and an MBE to presenter Aled Jones.
