Max Whitlock, Emma Raducanu, Adam Peaty and Tom Daley are among the sport stars named in the New Year Honours, after a year that included stunning Olympic, tennis and football success stories. Emma Raducanu is made an MBE, capping a remarkable year that saw the 19-year-old British number one become the first British woman to win a Grand Slam singles title since 1977. Also made an MBE is the diver and LGBT rights activist Tom Daley. His gold medal in the 10-metre synchronised diving at the Tokyo Olympic Games made him the first British diver to win four Olympic medals.
