Andy Murray named BBC Sports Personality of the Year


Andy Murray has been crowned BBC Sports Personality of the Year for 2015.

Accepting the award, the tennis star said he had not prepared an acceptance speech and thanked everyone who had voted for him.

Murray played an instrumental role in helping Great Britain to secure a historic Davis Cup title in November.

Rugby league star Kevin Sinfield was the runner-up while world champion heptathlete Jessica Ennis-Hill came third.

Murray said: "Thank you very much, I genuinely didn't prepare anything, I didn't expect this.

"A friend actually sent me a message the other day with an article from a newspaper which said that 'Andy Murray is duller than a weekend in Worthing', which I thought was a bit harsh - to Worthing."
