WATCH: Doddie Weir receives OBE from the Queen

Former Scotland rugby international Doddie Weir has received his OBE from the Queen.

Weir, who revealed he has motor neurone disease (MND) in 2017, was honoured for services to rugby, MND research and the Borders community.


He set up the My Name’5 Doddie Foundation to raise funds for research and provide grants to help those affected by the disease.

It followed a successful playing career that saw him earn 61 caps for Scotland.
