Lewis Hamilton receives MBE


Formula One champion Lewis Hamilton has collected his MBE from the Queen.

The 24-year-old racing driver arrived at Buckingham Palace in a black tie and grey suit with his father Anthony, brother Nicholas and stepmother Linda.

He said he felt "humbled" when he was named in the New Year Honours after becoming the youngest winner of the world championship in November.
