“Asked whether he wanted to be known as Sir Ringo, the musician, whose real name is Richard Starkey, replied: “I don’t know yet. It’s new and I don’t know how you use it properly.”
Turning to BBC reporter Colin Paterson, he added: “But I expect you to use it.”
The 77-year-old added he knew exactly what he’d do with his medal.
“I’ll be wearing it at breakfast,” he joked.”
