Wales and British and Irish Lions legend Gerald Davies has been awarded a Commander of the Order of the British Empire (CBE) for his services to young people and to rugby in Wales.
Davies, 57, was a superb attacking weapon in the Welsh backline from 1966-78. He toured with the Lions in 1968 and 1971.
Since his retirement from the sport, Davies has been a journalist with the BBC and The Times newspaper, as well as being the chairman of the Wales Youth Agency
Davies made his debut for Wales as a centre against Australia in 1966, but filled in on the wing on the Principality's 1969 tour of Australia and New Zealand. He proved such a success, some fans say he was the best winger the game has ever seen.
Davies is best remembered for his try - one of 20 in 46 Tests - in the 1971 Five Nations match against Scotland.
The Scots were leading before Davies scored in the corner in the last minute. Backrower John Taylor then kicked his famous conversion to steal victory.
Commentator Bill McLaren (CBE) and England star Jonny Wilkinson (MBE) were also honoured with awards.
