Bookies Slash Odds on Andy Murray Receiving a Knighthood

Bookies Slash Odds on Andy Murray Receiving a Knighthood

Andy Murray is once again the Wimbledon champion, and as soon as he lifted the golden trophy, bookmakers slashed on odds on the Scot finally being handed a Knighthood.

Murray claimed the second Wimbledon crown of his glittering career, and his third major overall, when he beat big-serving Canadian Milos Raonic in straight-sets this afternoon on Centre Court.

The result means that Ladbrokes are now offering odds of 3/1 for Murray to be honoured as a Knight of the Realm before the year 2020 – with odds of 10/1 offered before the tournament started.

Murray is also odds-on to be crowned BBC’s Sports Personality of the Year for a second time, with Labrokes offering odds of 10/11 for him to collect the gong for a second time.

Murray will now contemplate going for an Olympic Gold for the second time later this summer, when he travels to Rio with Team GB, and if you fancy him to come out on top in South America, the best price Ladbrokes are offering is 7/2.

What do you make of Murray’s achievement? And where does it leave him in the pantheon of British sporting greats?
