Medieval-mad teen is 'knighted' by locals after wearing armour every day for a year

A MEDIEVAL-mad teen has put on his “armour” every day for a year — and has now been “knighted”.

Villagers bestowed the honour on Leo Myatt, 16, for making them smile while he stomps the streets in his outfit.


He said: “I feel deeply honoured.

“I’m always happy to cheer people up and wave.”

Mum Emma Myatt, 40, said lockdown struck just as autistic Leo got his first medieval outfit.

She said: “One day he donned all his gear and told us, ‘I’m going out’.”

Locals at Draycott in the Moors, Staffs, gave him a certificate and call him “Sir”.

He will be out today on St George’s Day and continue “crusading the streets of Draycott and further afield”.
