Emma Raducanu will be honoured by the Queen for her extraordinary US Open triumph, Telegraph Sport understands. The 18-year-old is certain to receive at least an MBE after her whirlwind success in New York just months after she took her A-levels.⁠

Insiders believe there will also be debate around her becoming a rare teenage recipient of the OBE given the magnitude of the achievement. With bookmakers giving Raducanu odds of 499/1 to win the US Open last month, her victory is seen as unparalleled for a young British athlete.⁠

Raducanu was presented with a letter from the Queen praising her feat immediately after she completed her straight-sets victory in the Arthur Ashe Stadium.⁠
