Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has been awarded an honorary doctorate from Manchester University following his remarkable drive towards eradicating child poverty.

The announcement declared by Prime Minister Boris Johnson was initially turned down before he reversed it.

This now places Marcus Rashford as the youngest person to receive the award with others in the list include Sir Bobby Charlton, Sir Alex Ferguson, and Vincent Kompany.

Speaking after the news, he appreciated the reward noting how important it meant and the strides the initiative has taken up to date.

He continued by noting how awesome it feels like to be recognized by a whole city having grown up in Wythenshawe, Manchester.

The university appreciated the work of the 22-year-old player whose mission has been described as the right direction to positively impact the whole city.

Back at his club, he has been described as an outstanding player who has gone outside the field and help the poor and because of that, they are so proud of him.
