Are you sir-ious?
I’m a big fan of Andy Murray and was even when most of the country was castigating him as an anti-English choker. But to give him a knighthood at this stage of his life is just ridiculous. Watching TV sports reporters saying things such as “Sir Andy Murray had a hardfought victory over Nicolás Almagro’’ just underlines the fact. As John McEnroe almost said: “You cannot be sir-ious.’’ No sports star should be given an honour until their competitive career is over.
