Andy Murray has been voted the BBC Sports Personality of the Year for a record third time. This year, his remarkable achievements include claiming his second Wimbledon title and becoming tennis’ world number one.
"It's been a great year for British sport and I am so proud to have been a part of it," Murray said as he accepted the award from Miami.
He added: "I'd like to thank everyone who voted - I really appreciate your support."
"I'd also like to thank my family. I think my mum is in the crowd there [in Birmingham]. I'd like to thank my dad as well, who just got married 10 days ago. I miss you guys.
"A huge thanks to my wife and my daughter - she won't know what this means yet, but maybe in a few years she will.
"Actually, I've got a bone to pick with my wife because about an hour ago she told me she'd voted for Nick Skelton. Not smart from her with Christmas coming up."
Meanwhile, triathlete Alistair Brownlee was second and show jumper Nick Skelton came in at number three.
