Murray is right on knighthood

Published 10/07/2013

THE Prime Minister said that Andy Murray deserved a knighthood (News, July 9). It shows that David Cameron was, like many of us, caught up in the emotion of Sunday afternoon.

Andy Murray is, however, right – a knighthood is for more than winning a Wimbledon title at the age of 26. A knighthood recognises a lifetime's achievement.
