Eric Murray and Hamish Bond have won rowing's most prestigious award.

The double Olympic champion men's pair has been awarded the 2018 Thomas Keller Medal for an outstanding career in rowing.

Murray and Bond are the most successful men's pair in rowing history, winning 69 straight races from 2009 to 2016.

They will join the likes of Steve Redgrave and Caroline and Georgina Evers-Swindell as winners when they receive the Thomas Keller Medal at the season-ending world cup in Switzerland next month.
