OSAMA Bin Laden's deputy has condemned the award of a knighthood to Shredded Wheat legend Sir Ian Botham.

In a 20 minute audiotape, Ayman al-Zawahiri threatened to retaliate against Britain for honouring the former England cricket captain.

Zawahiri said: "I say to Blair's successor that by honouring this man you repeat the insults of Colin Cowdrey and Viv Richards."
