Nobel peace prize winner Desmond Tutu and former England all-rounder Andrew Flintoff have been awarded honorary life membership of the Marylebone Cricket Club.

The MCC says Tutu, a keen cricket enthusiast, and Flintoff were awarded the life memberships in "recognition of their diverse achievements on and off the cricket field.

Flintoff joins a select group of former players, including Sir Garfield Sobers, Sunil Gavaskar and Sir Ian Botham, who are life members of the MCC.
