Jason Kenny, Laura Kenny and Emma Raducanu are among the recipients of the 2022 New Year's Honours.

Husband-and-wife cycling superstars Jason and Laura Kenny have both been recognised in The Queen's 2022 New Year's Honours.

The couple enjoyed another prolific Olympics in Tokyo in 2021, with Jason becoming the most decorated Team GB athlete of all time, and now they will be rewarded by becoming a Sir and a Dame respectively.

Tom Daley, who achieved a lifelong dream of Olympic diving gold, is an OBE for services to diving and the LGBTQ+ community, while his partner Matty Lee is made an MBE.

Emma Raducanu, 19, earns an MBE following her spectacular victory at the US Open, swimming champion Adam Peaty becomes an OBE and Paralympics star Kadeena Cox is now an OBE.

Flora Duffy receives a Damehood for her memorable Olympic triathlon victory for the British Overseas Territory of Bermuda and Grenadian sprinter Kirani James becomes a CBE.

MBEs are handed to pentathlon champions Joe Choong and Kate French, swimmers Tom Dean, Duncan Scott and James Guy, triathletes Jonny Brownlee, Georgia Taylor-Brown and Alex Yee, and Olympic boxer Lauren Price.

In football, Chelsea Women manager Emma Hayes is recognised with an OBE after last season's domestic treble and England men's assistant manager Steve Holland gets an MBE following a year in which the Three Lions reached the Euro 2020 final.
