Millie Bright has been awarded an OBE, while Lionesses team-mates Mary Earps and Lauren Hemp both receive an MBE.

Bright told “I just want to say how honoured and grateful I am to have been given this honour.

“It’s a moment I will treasure with my loved ones forever. I feel extremely lucky, as many people could be in my position right now.

“It’s amazing to be recognised for my work in a sport that I love and adore and do everything in my power to be successful at, but also to grow the game for the next generation.

“I want to dedicate this honour to my family for all their sacrifices, that allow me to be where I am today, but also to my coaches and team mates.

“Congratulations to my team mates on your Honours too, I am incredibly proud of you.”
