It’s been an honour

MBEBritain’s sporting talent is celebrated in the New Year’s Honours list which also provides recognition for some of Britain’s famous and not so well known sporting heroes.

Others honoured include coaches, administrators and the people who work tirelessly at grass roots level encouraging and nurturing young talent and without whom those famous sports stars could not have achieved greatness.

Some of them are ex-sportsmen and women who have used their experience to put something back into sport whilst others are largely anonymous outside of their own institutions or communities.

Here are just some of them:
