Bermuda resident John “Bradshaw” Layfield has been named a Beyond Sport Ambassador for his work with Bermuda’s youth.

However, Mr Layfield said on Friday: “I really don’t see this as recognition for myself, but rather of the quality of the programme here and the great work being done by all the great people at Beyond Rugby Bermuda.”

The honour has previously been bestowed on Nobel Peace Prize winner Desmond Tutu and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair, among others.
