Billy Connolly has been honoured with his very own sandwich just weeks after he was awarded a knighthood. 

A sandwich shop in the comedian's home city has said it created a "really f****ing posh ham salad sandwich" to honour him. 

The 'Sir Big Yin' includes bloomer bread, garlic and Dijon mayo, roast ham, gouda, sliced egg, tomato, avocado, mixed leaves and honey mustard dressing. 

And the snacks have been flying off the shelves at Glasgow-based Piece with 200 being sold in the last two weeks. 

The sandwich is priced at £5.50 with 50p of each purchase going to The Brain Research Trust charity. 

It is available in the Piece stores on Glasgow's Argyle Street and Miller Street. 

Jon McDonald, from Piece, said: "Obviously, this is for a good cause first and foremost, but it's also just a nod to a true Glasgow hero. 

"All our staff are super excited. The ultimate goal is to get the Big Yin into one of our shops to try one - that would be unbelievable." 

Sir Billy's management did not wish to comment.
