Legendary Indian athlete Milkha Singh was honoured for his services to sports at a special event at the House of Lords.
House of Lords member and NRI industrialist Lord Swraj Paul presented the honour to 'The Flying Sikh', who is in London on a promotional tour for an upcoming movie based on his life story.
"We wanted to honour him and let him know that we are very proud of what he has achieved. I am very glad that Bollywood has decided to make a film on him. His story will inspire a new generation of young athletes who can see how a boy from an ordinary family went on to make global headlines," Lord Paul told PTI.
