Sports stars dominate New Year Honours list

Welsh Olympians and Paralympians are among those dominating this year's New Year Honours list.

A knighthood goes to Dave Brailsford, Team GB's Welsh-speaking cycling guru, who grew up in Deiniolen, Gwynedd, while Olympic taekwondo champion Jade Jones from Flint receives the MBE.

Other honours go to former cricketer Robert Croft and rugby great JJ Williams, while some less familiar faces have also been recognised.
