Arise, Sir Bradley of Wiggins (part 2)

So Bradley Wiggins is to be made a Sir!  Britain's first Olympic gold-medal winner in cycling is to receive a Knighthood in the New Years Honours list.

Well, you heard it here first five months ago!!

No Sirship for Andy Murray though - he's an OBE.  That's Andy Murray who this year sensationally won both an Olympic Gold and was the first British man to win a Grand Slam Title for 76 years with the US Open, on his own, and without the tennis equivalent of Team Sky behind him.  Just pointing that out.

But good news - Tracey Emin is to become a CBE.  After all, she did produce this poster for the Olympics.

Doodletastic!  That's right up there with an Olympic Gold and a Grand Slam title, obviously.
