LONDON: England and Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has been presented with his MBE by the Duke of Cambridge for his campaign to support vulnerable children.

The footballer, 24, was recognised for his campaign last summer to ensure no child in need went hungry, which resulted in the Government changing policy over its free school meals vouchers during lockdown.

The England forward has maintained his drive for social change by forming a child food poverty taskforce, which has linked up with some of the UK’s biggest supermarkets and food brands.

Prince William is president of the Football Association.
