Wimbledon champion Andy Murray said he felt honoured to receive the Freedom of Stirling and an honorary degree from the university where he trained as a boy.
Murray was awarded the Freedom of Stirling - the greatest civic honour the local authority can give - during a special council meeting at his old school Dunblane High this morning.
The reigning Olympic champion said the honours were "a bit different but mean just as much".
"Every time I come back here the support has been overwhelming," he said. "It's just always nice to come back and see the support and meet friends and family in Dunblane. I miss home."
