Eddie Jordan has been awarded an honorary OBE in recognition for his services to charity and motor racing.

Jordan - who now works as a BBC television pundit - is also a patron for CLIC Sargent and The Amber Foundation, which works with young homeless people. In Formula One Jordan entered his own team for the 1991 season, selling it to Midland cars at the end of 2004 with the team going on to become Force India.

"What a wonderful moment in my life," Jordan is quoted by Autosport. "I am hugely surprised and greatly overjoyed to receive this magnificent honour, however it would not have been possible without the help of my family, the Jordan Grand Prix F1 team, CLIC Sargent and in more recent times the BBC F1 team."
