British star Andy Murray wept on Tuesday after receiving the Freedom of the city of Stirling award at his childhood school in Dunblane and presented with an honorary degree by the University of Stirling.
“I’m honored and excited to receive the freedom of Stirling,” said Murray. “I’m also really looking forward to visiting my hometown and my old school. It will be great to share this special day with everyone, especially the local school children.
“Stirling prides itself on being the City for Sport and it would be great if young people felt inspired to pick up a tennis racquet – or any piece of sporting equipment – and pursue their dreams.”
