Sir Andy Murray has received his long-awaited knighthood from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace today (May 16).
Careful you don't injure yourself again, Andy!
The three-time Grand Slam champion was named in the Queen's New Years Honours back in 2016, after his second Wimbledon triumph and second Olympic gold.
Sir Andy said he was "very proud" to receive the honour.
The 32-year-old told reporters: "It's a nice day to spend with my family - my wife and parents are here."
However, he said he wished he could have brought his children to the ceremony, but felt that three-year-old Sophia Olivia and 18-month-old Edie were probably too young.
"I'll show them the medal when I get home," he said.
Sir Andy Murray has previously stated his plans to retire from playing tennis after this year's Wimbledon because of injury.
However, there's still hope he may continue beyond this point after undergoing successful hip surgery earlier this year.
The tennis icon collected his award at an investiture ceremony, conducted by the Prince of Wales. Murray received the knighthood for his services to tennis and charity.
