Ex-cricket umpire Dickie Bird receives OBE
Former Test cricket umpire Dickie Bird has received an OBE from Prince Charles at Buckingham Palace for services to the sport and to charity.
The 78-year-old is regarded as one of the game's most popular and consistent umpires. He received a guard of honour from the players and a standing ovation from the crowd at his final Test, between England and India, at Lord's in 1996.
Upon his retirement, he set up the Dickie Bird Foundation which gives grants to under-privileged children.
Speaking to the BBC's Harry Gratian after the ceremony, Mr Bird said that the award had made him feel "humble, very proud and honoured"
