Rea makes trip to Buckingham Palace

MBE for WSB king

Triple World Superbike Champion Jonathan Rea has received his MBE at Buckingham Palace.

The Castletown resident was presented with his honour by the Duke of Cambridge Prince William yesterday.

The Northern Ireland rider was awarded the honour in the Queen's birthday list in June.

Rea became the first rider to clinch three successive World Superbike titles in September.

No time though for him to celebrate - he's at a test session at Jerez today.
