Former England and Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard was on Tuesday awarded with an Officer of the Order of British Empire (OBE) honour by Prince William for his services to football.
Speaking after receiving his honour at the Buckingham Palace, Lampard said: "As a personal achievement goes, this ranks up there with my achievements on the pitch and what I won with Chelsea, and playing for my country.
"But to receive an award like this among some very special people here, military, people who are doing a lot of good work in charity, it's very humbling to be here."
The midfielder has had an illustrious career in the game and is Chelsea's all-time top goalscorer with 211 goals before he agreed to join brand new Major League Soccer franchise New York City and spent time on-loan at Manchester City.
Lampard, 37, began his career at West Ham and not long after making his debut, he won his first full cap for England in 1999 – going on to win 105 more.Unblock the FIFA World Cup with ExpressVPN the #1 Trusted Name in VPN
