Andy Murray has won the 2013 BBC Sports Personality of the Year after getting 401,470 votes (which equates to 56%).
The 26-year-old Scot is the fourth tennis player to win the award in its 60-year history after Ann Jones in 1969, Virginia Wade in 1977 and Greg Rusedski in 1997.
Murray, who became the first Briton in 77 years to win the Wimbledon men’s singles title last summer, said: "I'd like to thank all the public who voted, for giving me so much support over the last couple of years, it's made a huge difference."
"I've got a few people to thank - my family first. A lot are there in the crowd. They've supported me since I was a kid, making a lot of sacrifices for me. I couldn't have done it without you.
"My team are also all standing behind the camera here. They've been with me for a long time and I also couldn't have done it without them. Thank you to all of them."
"I know sometimes I'm not the easiest person to support but I've had a lot of pressure on me for a long time. I'm glad I managed to do it.
"No matter how excited I try to sound, my voice always sounds boring - that's just my voice. I'm sorry. I'm very excited right now. Thank you very much everyone."
