Rachel Yankey was presented with an OBE at Buckingham Palace on Thursday.

Following her MBE in 2005, the Arsenal Ladies star was named in the New Year's honours list in December 2013 for her tireless work in promoting the women's game at youth level.

Everyone at the club would like to congratulate Rachel for this fantastic achievement.
