Tennis star Andy Murray won “the best year” of his career by winning the BBC Sports Personality of the Year for the third time in four years. In doing so he became the first person to land the prize three times and in successive years.


The 29-year-old was the huge favourite after retaining his Olympic title and winning Wimbledon for the second time on his way to overtaking Novak Djokovic ending the year as Britain's first ever world no1.

The award was presented by Jessica Ennis Hill and Prince William at a ceremony in Birmingham but he wasn't present at the award show. The award was presented to him physically by three-time heavyweight world champion, Lennox Lewis.
