Double joy for honoured Hoys


Triple Olympic gold medal winning cyclist Sir Chris Hoy was knighted at Buckingham Palace today.

His family enjoyed the rare privilege of being the first family to boast two members receiving separate honours for different achievements. Carol Hoy received the MBE for her services to nursing.

They spoke to the BBC's Jon Brain.
