David Brailsford receives knighthood from the Queen
TEAM GB's cycling boss David Brailsford has today been knighted by the Queen.
Sir David Brailsford, 48, from Ilkeston, was recognised for his services to British cycling and the Olympic Games.
He led the likes of Cardiff's Geraint Thomas, Bradley Wiggins and Sir Chris Hoy to a third successive Olympic medal haul.
He said the honour made him proud.
"We spoke briefly about the Olympic Games and about what a proud moment it was for the country," Sir David said afterwards.
