    Doh! Beaten to it! Andy so deserves it! What an amazing year! #murraysyear OBE is a step up from MBE right? Fitting that he got it as proof his achievements were awesome!

    Andy Murray, who also won gold at the Games, becomes an OBE. After his men's singles victory at London 2012 the Scot became the first British man in 76 years to win a Grand Slam tournament when he triumphed at the US Open in September.

    Congratulations Andy!

    It being an award there is always controversy around the corner and it could be asked why Andy didn't receive the CBE (the next highest award) like Mo Farah and Jess Ennis. It's as if his US Open is not being included in the decision. Knighthoods/Dameships have been awarded to those who have won medals at more than one Olympics hence Wiggins, Ainslie etc.

    Re: Andy Murray - OBE

    Aaaaah!!! Am I going nuts???

    Just reading the BBC report and it gives Andy a CBE!!! Which is right?
    Andy Murray was rewarded with a CBE in a year which saw him win Olympic gold and become the first British man to win a grand slam singles title for 76 years when he triumphed in the US Open.
