Andy Murray says he should not be guaranteed a knighthood for his historic Wimbledon win.
He told ITV News Sports Editor Steve Scott such recognition should take "a lot more work", but when asked, he admitted he would not turn one down:
David Cameron, Labour leader Ed Miliband, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and the Scottish National Party's Westminster leader Angus Robertson listened to Murray who sipped from a glass of water as he chatted with the political leaders.
After arriving at Number 10, Andy Murray was taken into the Downing Street garden where he described what it felt like to be a Wimbledon champion.

Four Jack Russell puppies were born just as Andy Murray was making British sporting history on Centre Court.
The appropriately named Murray, Deuce, Ace and Summer were all born during the final set of Andy Murray's win over Novak Djokovic in the Wimbledon final.
The mother of the puppies, Blossom, was found wandering the streets in Southampton on Friday before she was brought to a Blue Cross re-homing centre to give birth.
Murray was born first before Deuce, Ace and Summer followed.
Kirsty Smith, Animal Welfare Assistant at Blue Cross in Southampton, said: “We couldn't believe it when Blossom went into labour during the Wimbledon final. When the first puppy popped out during the final set, it was a no brainer to name him Murray after the new champion.”
The charity have said that Blossom and her four new-born puppies are all doing well and will be ready to look for new homes in a few weeks’ time.

The BBC said that Sunday's Men's Final, broadcast on BBC1, attracted a five-minute peak of 17.3 million.
It said that the figure was up on last year's final, which was watched by a peak of 17 million when Murray lost to Roger Federer.
