Katherine Grainger: It's like winning all over again

London's Olympic champions are celebrating again after being rewarded in a special New Year Honours list, with Bradley Wiggins and Ben Ainslie receiving knighthoods.

All the 2012 gold medallists end the year with an honour, although seven athletes who had previously received honours were not recognised further this time.

Rower Katherine Grainger is made a CBE after she won a gold medal with Anna Watkins in the double sculls following three successive silver medals.

She told the BBC's Gavin Walker it was a total surprise and a very special honour.
