Judy Murray is to receive an honorary degree from Abertay University in Dundee for her "outstanding contribution to British sport".

The tennis coach is one of three honorary graduates at the university's winter graduation ceremonies.

Murray, who is the mother of tennis champions Andy and Jamie, will receive an Honorary Doctorate of Education.

She stepped down in March as Great Britain's Fed Cup captain after five years in the role.

Author and journalist Matthew Syed, and video games composer and musician Rob Hubbard will also receive honorary degrees at a ceremony in Dundee's Caird Hall on 25 November.

University principal Prof Nigel Seaton said: "I am delighted that Abertay University is conferring honorary degrees on these inspirational leaders.

"In doing so, we celebrate their contribution to our national life, and we are proud to hold them as examples to the Abertay graduates with whom they will share the stage."
