Laura Kenny, the four-time Olympic champion, said “all I do is ride a bike” as she spoke of the “huge honour” at being made a CBE alongside her husband Jason during a ceremony at Buckingham Palace yesterday.The 25-year-old cyclist, who is expecting her first child, said “nothing compares” to being given the award, despite announcing her pregnancy, getting married and winning two gold Olympic medals in the last 12 months.”I almost feel like I don’t deserve it”, she said. “There’s service people and it’s such a huge honour, but I feel like all I do is ride a bike.” Showjumping champion Nick Skelton, who became Britain’s second-oldest gold medallist with victory at Rio 2016, was also be honoured. The Warwickshire rider, 59, retired from the sport earlier this month.A number of Paralympians were also honoured at the ceremony, including archers Joanna Frith, John Walker and Jessica Stretton.

We’re doing things we never really did, like going down to my parents’ house, for example.” Speaking after the ceremony, he said: “I’m still training, just ticking over, just relaxing, letting the dust settle. Obviously we’ve got an extra family member coming at the end of the year.”He said he was “excited” but “a little bit worried” about juggling being a father with training for another Olympic Games.”If it fits, it fits, and if it doesn’t then I’ll do something else.” Credit:John Stillwell/PA Wire Laura Kenny is awarded a CBE for services to cyclingCredit:Yui Mok/PA Wire The two arrived to pick up their CBEsCredit:PA/JULIAN SIMMONDS FOR THE DAILY TELEGRAPH She said the Princess Royal, who led the investiture ceremony, asked her “what it was like to have a break, to have a bit of time off – because obviously she’s from a sporting background herself so she knows what it’s like. “So that was nice for her to say and actually realise that I haven’t had a break since 2010.”Mr Kenny, who was also made a CBE for his services to cycling,described the day as “mega”, and said he was still considering whether to aim for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020.
