Former UK Sport chair, Baroness Sue Campbell, has received a damehood in this year's New Year's honours list.
The long-time sports administrator – who was named as one of the 100 most powerful women in the UK by the BBC in 2013 – became baroness in 2008 in recognition of her successful period at UK Sport.
"These things are an immense privilege, but they're also something you accept on behalf of an awful lot of other people who make your job possible," Campbell said.
Campbell was among a host of sports people receiving honours in this year's list.
A number of players and staff associated with the World Cup-winning England cricket team received recognitions. Captain Eoin Morgan was made CBE, while there were OBEs for coach Trevor Bayliss and all-rounder Ben Stokes.
Women's sport was well-represented this year, with taekwondo double Olympic gold medallist Jade Jones being given an OBE, alongside Solheim Cup captain Catriona Matthew.
Others included footballer Jill Scott, netballers Serena Guthrie and Jo Harten (both MBEs), heptathlete Kelly Sotherton (MBE) and squash world champion Laura Massaro (MBE).
