Frankie Dettori becomes an honorary doctor
Originally from Italy, Suffolk based Dettori came to England as a teenager to become a stable lad. After his racecourse achievements were recognised, Frankie Dettori became a household name.
Dettori said: ‘It feels a little bit embarrassing, to be honest, as I have been standing alongside hundreds of young students who have been studying for many years to get a degree and I’ve sneaked in through the back door.’
‘I left school at 14 and I have been here for 25 years now. I came here with little English but the British public have really embraced me.’
‘I’m really proud to receive an honorary doctorate and I can’t wait to show the pictures to my children.’
