  • Judy Murray’s work in tennis recognised with an OBE

Murray joins her sons in receiving honours, with Andy made a knight in the New Year honours while Jamie also has an OBE.

Dick Greenwood, the former England flanker and coach, also receives an OBE for services to national and global rugby.

His fellow Ulsterman, Northern Ireland football captain Steven Davis, was awarded an MBE for services to his sport.

Judy Murray has told how watching her sons rise to worldwide sporting stardom inspired her to get her first tattoo at the age of 57.

"I was so determined that there would be a legacy from what Jamie and Andy had achieved and I felt I could have much more long-term effect by sharing everything I've learnt over my coaching career with as many people as I could".

Murray's passion is getting more women and girls involved in tennis and sport in general.

Ireland rugby captain Rory Best, who won his 100th cap for his country late a year ago, is another recipient of an OBE for services to rugby.

Jennie Price, the Sport England chief executive since 2007, receives a CBE for services to sport, specifically for her work increasing levels of female participation.

Murray, 57, has been a successful coach and has worked hard to promote tennis among youngsters.

The tennis coach and former captain of Great Britain's Federation Cup team won 64 titles in Scotland during her junior and senior playing career but stopped short of turning professional to attend university.
