Dave Brailsford was knighted by the Queen at Buckingham Palace today as many of the athletes from the 2012 Olympic Games received their honours. Brailsford, along with Bradley Wiggins, was knighted at the end of 2012 after another successful year from Britain's cyclists.

"It means so much and is such a humbling experience, I'm very proud," Brailsford said. "We talked about about the Olympics and how proud everyone was and what a great event it had been."
