Tim Peake backed for 2016 Knighthood

| 18.02.2016

Leading bookmaker Coral has witnessed a gamble on astronaut Tim Peake being awarded a knighthood in 2016 for his achievements, following the news that Chichester City Council voted to grant him the Freedom of the City.

The firm make him even money to be knighted in 2016 in the Queen’s Birthday Honours list or in the New Year honours list. If he doesn’t receive the honour this year, Coral is confident it will happen within five years, making it odds-on at 1-5.

“The odds are starting to suggest that Tim Peake will be knighted sooner rather than later for his incredible achievements and judging by the latest gamble, punters firmly believe he should be knighted in 2016,” said Coral’s Nicola McGeady.
