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”.
