    Just so people understand the order of honours:-

    The Honours System
    Commonly awarded ranks:

    • Knight or Dame
    • CBE - Commander of the Order of the British Empire
    • OBE - Officer of the Order of the British Empire
    • MBE - Member of the Order of the British Empire
    • BEM - British Empire Medal

    Yep it's deffo OBE - here's the official list. BBC typo I guess.

    Just a note - some of those who have CBE's already had an MBE so went to a higher honour than Andy e.g. Jess Ennis.

    However, his achievements to me really merited more - NO OTHER ATHLETE GOT GOLD AND SILVER ON THE SAME DAY!!! (or won a major event outside the Olympics in the same year).

    Andy is still young and will have many other opportunities to warrant a higher honour whereas the majority of Olympians can only be rewarded every 4 years. Rory McIlroy was awarded an MBE last year for winning the US Open and wins another major this year but no further recognition. Probably if he'd won his first major this year he'd have received the OBE. Royal honours are subjective and it's easy to see why many find them a hollow award.

    From Andy's FBook page in........

    It is with incredible pride that I have been named in the New Years Honours List to receive an OBE from Her Majesty the Queen for Services to Sport.

    2012 has been an amazing year for British sport and I am proud to have been able to play my part.

    I reached my first Wimbledon final, competed and won gold at the London 2012 Olympics with Team GB at Wimbledon, and then won my first grand slam title at the US Open.

    Being recognised in such a way at the end of such a great season is the finishing touch on 2012.

    Thank you all for your support, I hope everyone has a very happy New Year.....and here’s to 2013!
