Calls for Andy Murray to receive a knighthood have intensified in the wake of the Scots’ victory in the gold medal match at Rio 2016.

Have your say by voting in our poll. It’s a simple yes or no response. Should Murray receive a knighthood?

Alex Salmond previously said the tennis player would be the “most popular Scottish knight since Sir William Wallace”.

Murray won a second gold medal at the Rio Olympics on Sunday. It was his second triumph of the summer after he secured a second Wimbledon title last month.

The Dunblane-born champion also won the US Open in 2012 and steered Great Britain to victory in the Davis Cup last year.

Three cyclists have previously been similarly honoured: Sir Chris Hoy in 2009, Dame Sarah Storey and Sir Bradley Wiggins in 2013.
