British 100-year-old veteran Tom Moore, who helped raise almost 33 million pounds to fight the coronavirus with a charity marathon on a Walker in his garden, received the title of knight.
The ceremony — the first-ever knighthood with social distance-was held at Windsor castle.
Sir Tom, a resident of Keeley in West Yorkshire, called the day of dedication one of the most special in his life.
British Prime Minister Boris Johnson suggested that captain Tom be made a knight.
On April 30, Moore celebrated his centenary, having already become a hero of Britain. On his birthday, he was awarded the honorary title of Colonel, and the British air force congratulated him by flying planes over his home.
