Laura and Jason Kenny are among a host of Olympians who have been honoured at Buckingham Palace.

The cycling pair both received CBEs from Princess Anne in recognition of the string of gold medals they have won for Team GB.

Laura said “nothing compares” to getting the award, adding: “I almost feel like I don’t deserve it – there’s service people and it’s such a huge honour, but I feel like all I do is ride a bike.”

Her husband described the day as “mega” and said he was still deciding on whether to aim for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.

Elton also weighed in, writing on Instagram:

 
”Congratulations to our Rocket Sports golden couple, who were honoured with CBE’s yesterday. So proud of you!”
