That's what I was meaning, but I'm not sure if it stops you being offered it again at a later date or not. I don't know either if his OBE could be upgraded to a CBE, which is the final step up before a knighthood.
Yes it can be upgraded Aileen but only after a certain interval of I think 5 years but may have got that wrong.
And very much agree with you about his speech. It was pure Andy -modest, self-deprecating, generous to others and no sense that this is a global sporting super star talking. I really didn't think he'd win it a second time. But all the more impressive that he did when I saw what some of the other contenders had achieved and that he won so convincingly especially as some people might have thought it would be enough for him to win as part of the DC team. I've not read any of the social media comments but certainly all the mainstream media I read the next day considered it a well deserved achievement, Felt so proud of our Andy
