"He cares for everybody who's been around him. Words can't describe what sort of a man he is." 🏉 Rugby league legend Kevin Sinfield has received his OBE from the Duke of Cambridge at an investiture service at Windsor Castle. Sinfield has raised almost £5m for motor neurone disease (MND) charities in honour of former teammate Rob Burrow who was diagnosed with MND in 2019. The Leicester Tigers defence coach took on gruelling challenges, most recently raising more than £2m for MND research by running 101 miles in 24 hours from Leicester Tigers’ Mattioli Woods Welford Road stadium and finishing in Leeds at Headingley, home of rugby league club Leeds Rhinos, where he played for 18 years. Geoff Burrow, father of Rob and a friend of Sinfield, said: "This just puts the icing on the cake - you couldn't give Kevin enough accolades.” In December 2020, Sinfield led a team that raised more than £2.7m for MND research by running seven marathons in seven days. #KevinSinfield #Leicester #Leicestershire #Rugby #RugbyLeague #RugbyUnion #BBCRadioLeicester
