February 6, 2020

According to Royal Central:

A medal awarded to a former heavy weight boxer to recognise his role in saving Princess Anne from being kidnapped is set to be sold at auction.

The George Medal was awarded to Ronnie Russell for his bravery during a kidnapping attempt 46 years ago when The Queen’s daughter was held at gunpoint.

The boxer saw Princess Anne’s car at a standstill in The Mall, with Ball firing gunshots and injuring four people.

“I hit him as hard as I could and he was flat on the floor face down.”
