A yachting boss and senior London 2012 executive has pulled out of an honours ceremony at Buckingham Palace today following the death of Olympic gold medal-winning sailor Andrew Simpson.
Sir Keith Mills, the deputy chairman of Locog (London Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games) was due to be made a Knight Grand Cross - the highest grade of knighthood.
A London 2012 spokesman said: "We are all deeply saddened by the news of Andrew's death and, as a result of this tragic accident, Sir Keith will no longer be attending his investiture at Buckingham Palace today."
