Jackson receives CBE
Colin Jackson
Jackson already has an MBE and an OBE
Former world champion sprint hurdler Colin Jackson collected a CBE at Buckingham Palace on Wednesday.

The 36-year-old 110m hurdles world record holder retired from athletics earlier this year, and now works as a BBC commentator.

"I received an MBE in 1990 and an OBE in 1999, so this is my third time," he said after receiving the award.

"So I thought I would be quite cool, but it is just amazing how the emotions kick in."

Jackson also coaches a 400m runner and a swimmer.

"I'd been at the top in athletics for 18 years, so it's a whole new lifestyle for me now," he said.
