A report claims that seven-time Formula One world champion Lewis Hamilton is to be awarded a knighthood in the New Year's Honours list.

Lewis Hamilton is to be awarded a knighthood in the New Year's Honours list, according to a report.

The 35-year-old last week matched Michael Schumacher's record of seven Formula One world titles to strengthen his claim as being Britain's greatest living sportsman.

The Sun claims that Hamilton, who has also been vocal about the Black Lives Matter movement, is to be rewarded for his latest achievement with a knighthood.

The Government's Honours Committee is said to have given the green light for the gong after Hamilton's tax affairs were deemed to be in order.

Hamilton, who resides in tax haven Monaco, will follow in the steps of Mo Farah, Andy Murray and Alastair Cook in being honoured by the Queen.
